Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins found nearby offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the locale most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't reported until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a way greater area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following generations and the construction of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town which has witnessed improved development in the recent past.
