Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins uncovered nearby give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were inhabiting the locale probably from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not cited till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a substantially wider area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the following decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand.
