Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on near by show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics found reveal that they were dwelling in the local area possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a lot bigger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be appended up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
