Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were settling the vicinity perhaps from the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably greater area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't inserted till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
