Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts picked up mean that they were inhabiting the region most likely since the sixth century. The commune as such was not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a considerably greater area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
