Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins found in the area offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on denote that they were staying in the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't described till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a far larger area than simply the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
