Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a past extending back to Roman days, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins discovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were settling the area more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not described until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a lot greater area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
