Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed indicate that they were settling the locale most probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not mentioned till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a substantially wider area than just the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
