Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a history going back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage found in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood almost certainly from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a far bigger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be put on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
