Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on denote that they were living in the local area probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much greater area than only the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be put on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
