Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market during the tenth century, and relics unearthed imply that they were settling the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not discussed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably wider area than just the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
