Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it lays close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage uncovered nearby offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on indicate that they were settling the locale most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a much larger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
