Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed reveal that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not observed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a far bigger area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the following decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that's seen increased development in current times.
