Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage discovered nearby give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in around the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the locale undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially greater area compared to the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
