Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins unearthed near by show proof of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were residing in the locale more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a substantially larger area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not included prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
