Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the region quite likely from the 6th Century. The village existing then was not cited until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a way wider area than just the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not inserted prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town which has seen increased development in the past several years.
