Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed reveal that they were residing in the region most likely since the sixth century. The village as it was then was not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a much larger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
