Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed a market during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The village as such was not reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a much wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
