Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is situated near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on reveal that they were residing in the locale more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time isn't listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a far wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, 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" section wouldn't be included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
