Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coins picked up near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were settling the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a considerably larger area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
