Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found in close proximity offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on reveal that they were staying in the locale perhaps from the sixth century. The village existing then was not mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly larger area than only the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be applied until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
