Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a considerably bigger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
