Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins found nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were settling the vicinity quite likely from the sixth century. The village as such was not cited until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a much larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a growing market town that has witnessed greater development in the past several years.
