Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coins found in close proximity give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon denote that they were inhabiting the local area possibly from the sixth century. The village existing at that time is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially larger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
