Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins stumbled upon in the area show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered show that they were settling the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a substantially bigger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
