Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as such was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
