Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it stands near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics unearthed indicate that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a lot larger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not appended until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
