Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found denote that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't documented until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way bigger area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be included until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
