Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled upon near by give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were residing in the area in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't discussed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot greater area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not included until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
