Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed nearby offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered mean that they were staying in the local area most probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much wider area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
