Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area show evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a far larger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
