Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is situated next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were living in the region in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not documented until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a way larger area than only the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name could have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has seen increased development in the past several years.
