Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a lot bigger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
