Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past extending back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled on nearby give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were dwelling in the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a lot wider area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
