Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered mean that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the sixth century. The village existing then is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
