Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled upon near by show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and relics found reveal that they were inhabiting the area perhaps from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not described until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a considerably larger area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the following generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town which has witnessed increased development in recent years.
