Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a history extending back to the era of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled on in the area give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a much bigger area than merely the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the ensuing decades and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen improved development in recent years.
