Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman era, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered show that they were staying in the region possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a much bigger area than simply the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not added up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
