Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the area in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village existing at this time was not observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a far bigger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
