Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it stands close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity very likely from the sixth century. The commune as such is not mentioned till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a way larger area than only the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't put on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
