Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it lies next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins uncovered nearby show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were living in the region in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't listed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a lot bigger area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
