Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the locale almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't discussed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a far wider area than only the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
