Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market during the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the local area most likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a much wider area than only the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
