Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins uncovered in the area show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were residing in the locale quite likely from the 6th Century. The village existing then is not documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a way wider area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
