Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border in between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage unearthed in the area show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed a market during the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not referred to till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably greater area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
