Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics found indicate that they were inhabiting the locale undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a much greater area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put in before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
