Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it stands near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the locale most probably from the sixth century. The village as it was is not described until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a much larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
