Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage stumbled upon in the area show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were residing in the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a significantly bigger area than merely the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get added till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the ensuing years and the construction of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has seen accelerated development in modern times.
