Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage uncovered nearby offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who developed a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts found reveal that they were residing in the region more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't reported until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a much greater area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's seen increased development in the recent past.
