Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics discovered indicate that they were staying in the region undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a far greater area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
