Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up imply that they were settling the area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as such is not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a substantially wider area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
