Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies next to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics picked up mean that they were settling the locale most probably since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a much bigger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
