Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins discovered in the area show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed reveal that they were settling the local area very likely from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time isn't referred to till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a way greater area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not included before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
