Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman days, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins discovered near by show proof of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the vicinity almost certainly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not documented until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a much wider area compared to the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
