Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were settling the local area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't described until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially larger area than merely the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't included prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
