Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled on in the area offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up denote that they were dwelling in the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably bigger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
