Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage found near by offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the locale probably since the sixth century. The settlement as such was not described till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
