Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time was not documented till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a significantly bigger area than merely the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name might possibly have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
