Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early relics and coins found in the area give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were settling the local area possibly from the sixth century. The village as such is not described until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a far larger area than merely the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
