Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed in the area offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and relics uncovered denote that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly larger area than just the town itself, and included the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
