Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage found in close proximity show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts found denote that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not discussed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a lot larger area than just the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get put in before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
