Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands next to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on mean that they were inhabiting the locale very likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a way wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
