Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered denote that they were living in the local area probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not observed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a substantially wider area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't included until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
