Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins discovered nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who created a market in around the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as such is not reported till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially bigger area than simply the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town that has seen improved development in the recent past.
