Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on indicate that they were staying in the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not referred to until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a way wider area than only the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
