Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were living in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time isn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
