Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled upon near by show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and relics stumbled on denote that they were residing in the neighbourhood very likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a substantially larger area compared to the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
