Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage unearthed near by give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered denote that they were inhabiting the locale quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a lot wider area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be applied prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
