Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits near the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed imply that they were inhabiting the local area in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a lot bigger area than merely the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't put on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
