Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins discovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were staying in the area most probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not observed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a considerably bigger area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name might possibly have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not appended till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
