Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coins found in the area show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were residing in the area very likely since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be added up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
