Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the locale most probably since the sixth century. The village as such wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a substantially greater area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put in until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding years and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town that has witnessed increased development in the past few years.
