Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins uncovered in close proximity show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the vicinity almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a considerably greater area than merely the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't applied before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
