Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage found near by give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were dwelling in the local area most probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a much larger area than just the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be inserted until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
