Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region more than likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a considerably wider area than just the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
