Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins picked up near by show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics discovered reveal that they were staying in the region most likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't cited till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially larger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger during the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen greater development in the past several years.
