Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were staying in the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not described till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
