Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies near the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, 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 the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered mean that they were settling the neighbourhood possibly since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't cited until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a much wider area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
