Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were settling the vicinity quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not discussed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a considerably larger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
