Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins discovered in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were residing in the vicinity probably from the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a much larger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name could perhaps have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
