Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage uncovered near by give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were settling the region in all probability since the 6th Century. The village existing then was not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a far wider area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added on prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
