Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled on nearby give evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a substantially greater area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
