Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands next to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on imply that they were settling the area most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not described until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, incorporated a substantially wider area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
