Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins unearthed in the area offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon mean that they were living in the locale possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing at this time is not cited until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a far greater area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
