Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood quite possibly from the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't listed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly greater area than only the town itself, and comprised the settlements 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 twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
