Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were inhabiting the area more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a considerably greater area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be added up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
