Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins found in the area offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were staying in the region most likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't discussed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a considerably greater area compared to the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name might have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
