Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and relics found denote that they were residing in the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a lot wider area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get inserted prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
