Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found next to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins unearthed near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the region quite possibly since the sixth century. The village as it was was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a substantially larger area compared to the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
