Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins picked up nearby show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed reveal that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not described until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a significantly greater area than just the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be included up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the ensuing years and the construction of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town which has seen greater development in current times.
