Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage discovered in the area offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts discovered mean that they were residing in the vicinity in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't reported until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a way larger area than only the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
