Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to Roman days, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed suggest that they were dwelling in the local area probably from the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a far bigger area than just the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not appended prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the ensuing generations and the building of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the past few years.
