Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the locale possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing then isn't described till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a considerably larger area than only the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the succeeding decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand.
