Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region quite likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not observed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a considerably bigger area compared to the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be included before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger throughout the succeeding generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town which has witnessed increased development in the last few years.
