Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage found near by show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up mean that they were living in the locale more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a much bigger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name could very well have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
