Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage found in the area offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the local area most likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a considerably wider area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
