Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits near to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins found near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were inhabiting the locale quite possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not mentioned until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a much wider area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be applied prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
