Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage unearthed near by offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered reveal that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't reported till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
