Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins unearthed near by show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up show that they were staying in the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not referred to until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a much larger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
