Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins picked up nearby give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the area in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a lot wider area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be included till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
