Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins discovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered reveal that they were inhabiting the local area perhaps from the sixth century. The village as such wasn't described until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a substantially larger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put in until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
