Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were settling the local area most likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a considerably wider area than merely the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
