Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located near to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins picked up nearby offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were residing in the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a much wider area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not appended prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
