Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage uncovered near by offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were living in the local area more than likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a lot greater area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
