Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coins found near by show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up reveal that they were settling the locale most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a much wider area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
