Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage found near by show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed mean that they were settling the locale very likely from the sixth century. The village as such wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a much larger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not inserted up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
