Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is situated near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed mean that they were dwelling in the region quite likely from the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a way wider area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
