Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is situated near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins unearthed nearby give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were settling the vicinity quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a much bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
