Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed near by offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were residing in the region quite likely from the sixth century. The village existing at this time is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
