Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage uncovered nearby show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who introduced a market during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were inhabiting the local area perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
