Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman days, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were settling the vicinity most likely from the sixth century. The village as it was isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a way wider area compared to the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be applied up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
