Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins discovered near by show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered denote that they were inhabiting the locale possibly from the sixth century. The village as such is not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way bigger area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the coming decades and the building of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that has seen increased development in recent times.
