Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were settling the vicinity perhaps since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time isn't cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not appended until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the succeeding decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that's witnessed greater development in the last few years.
