Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby show proof of this. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created the market place during the 10th Century, and relics unearthed show that they were inhabiting the area most probably since the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially greater area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
