Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins uncovered near by give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the local area in all probability from the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a substantially greater area compared to the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
