Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed next to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins picked up nearby give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were inhabiting the region very likely from the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a considerably bigger area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
