Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled on in the area give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the area very likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing then was not documented until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly bigger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be included until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the coming years and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few years.
