Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past extending back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins uncovered in the area give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created a market during the tenth century, and artefacts picked up imply that they were staying in the neighbourhood in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not referred to till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a lot greater area than only the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put on prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
