Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage found in the area offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were inhabiting the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't described till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
