Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered denote that they were staying in the vicinity very likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then wasn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a substantially bigger area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
