Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a considerably wider area than simply the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
