Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins uncovered in the area show evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a substantially wider area than merely the town alone, and included the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
