Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman days, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins uncovered nearby offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time wasn't reported till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly wider area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
