Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the locale quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
