Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins unearthed near by show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered reveal that they were residing in the locale most probably since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not cited till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a far wider area than only the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
