Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage unearthed in the area give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were living in the region perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as such is not cited until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a far wider area compared to the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
