Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were settling the region quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't discussed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a much bigger area than only the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
