Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon indicate that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood more than likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was is not referred to until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a considerably wider area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
