Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage found nearby give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were settling the vicinity most probably since the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't cited until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get inserted until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
