Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were settling the local area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not referred to till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be appended prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
