Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled on nearby show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The village as it was is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
