Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early relics and coins discovered nearby offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities found reveal that they were inhabiting the area possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was was not observed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a considerably larger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be added on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
