Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coins picked up nearby give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the local area most likely from the sixth century. The village as it was then was not reported until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly bigger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't appended till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
