Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins picked up nearby offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not listed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a way larger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be inserted till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
