Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up in the area offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity more than likely from the sixth century. The village as such isn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a way bigger area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not included prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following years and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has seen greater development in the past few decades.
