Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't described until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far larger area than just the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get appended till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
