Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman times, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies near to the Chilterns and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon mean that they were settling the locale in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't described until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a lot greater area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has seen increased development in the recent past.
