Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the Roman period, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered show that they were residing in the region most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a considerably wider area than simply the town alone, and included the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be included till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
