Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a past going back to Roman times, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated near to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins picked up near by show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were staying in the locale most likely from the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't described until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot bigger area than just the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding over the coming years and the building of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town which has seen greater development in the last few years.
