Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins found nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were staying in the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune as such was not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a lot larger area compared to the town alone, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
