Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage picked up near by show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as such isn't observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a substantially greater area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
