Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage uncovered in the area offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, went through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were settling the local area most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a much greater area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get included until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
