Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered reveal that they were settling the local area quite likely from the sixth century. The commune existing then wasn't reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot bigger area than only the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be applied before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
