Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage discovered in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and relics unearthed show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then was not reported until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a substantially bigger area than simply the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be included until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
