Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coins discovered in the area show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were residing in the region undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The commune as such isn't observed until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a lot wider area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
