Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays near to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered mean that they were inhabiting the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not discussed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a way bigger area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be applied prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had 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 through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
