Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman days, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and relics picked up reveal that they were residing in the locale quite possibly from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time was not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a far greater area than merely the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the coming years and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen increased development in the recent past.
