Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about 37,000 and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins found in close proximity give proof of this. The early Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed show that they were living in the local area quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such isn't discussed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a substantially greater area than only the town alone, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
