Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were dwelling in the region very likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot wider area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
