Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were living in the area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably bigger area than simply the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
