Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on indicate that they were settling the vicinity most likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time is not listed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly greater area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
