Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays very close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered imply that they were inhabiting the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't listed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a way larger area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name could have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be appended prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
