Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands close to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the locale most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a much wider area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get included prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the coming generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
