Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a history extending back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the locale perhaps from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't observed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a far wider area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
