Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a history going back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins discovered in the area show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were residing in the locale probably since the sixth century. The village existing then was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a significantly greater area than merely the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop.
