Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coins discovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who introduced a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered imply that they were living in the area most probably from the sixth century. The village existing then was not reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may likely have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
