Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins uncovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on suggest that they were staying in the region possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a way wider area than just the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
