Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon indicate that they were settling the local area most probably from the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a much bigger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
