Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a past going back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage uncovered in the area give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market during the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the locale possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a much larger area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
