Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found imply that they were residing in the locale more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't described till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a way wider area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
