Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were settling the area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially wider area than merely the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be applied up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
