Review of Leighton Buzzard:

Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage found in the area offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood possibly from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
