Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market in about the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were residing in the area probably since the sixth century. The village existing at that time was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a significantly bigger area than only the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
