Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a past stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lies close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the region perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a substantially greater area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
