Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins found in the area offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune as such wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
