Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a past extending back to the Roman era, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage found in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up imply that they were settling the area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as such was not referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably wider area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
