Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to the era of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were residing in the area quite possibly from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time was not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a far larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get included before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
