Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage unearthed near by offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the area most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't described until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a lot wider area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may well have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
