Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled on near by offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who created the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on denote that they were staying in the locale probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not cited until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a considerably wider area than only the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
