Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it sits near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage unearthed nearby show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up reveal that they were residing in the area very likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not referred to until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a considerably larger area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has witnessed increased development in current times.
