Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage picked up nearby give proof of this. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were staying in the region in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village existing at that time isn't reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a far greater area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
