Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins unearthed in the area give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon denote that they were inhabiting the vicinity most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a substantially larger area than just the town itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
