Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins unearthed in the area give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the area undoubtedly from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably larger area than just the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
