Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were settling the region perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not discussed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a far wider area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't applied until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
