Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics found indicate that they were dwelling in the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as it was is not documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
