Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage found in close proximity give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon imply that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't described till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably greater area than only the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
