Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage discovered in the area give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were dwelling in the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time was not listed until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a much bigger area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
