Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, came through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics picked up suggest that they were staying in the local area perhaps from the 6th Century. The commune existing then was not documented till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a lot bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
