Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a story extending back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins picked up nearby give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered indicate that they were dwelling in the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as such isn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly bigger area than simply the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
