Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were staying in the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time wasn't cited till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a far greater area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
