Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman days, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage picked up in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed mean that they were living in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as such is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a considerably bigger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
