Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins found nearby give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered indicate that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite likely from the sixth century. The village as such was not described until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a much greater area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
