Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were residing in the region more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't inserted up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the coming generations and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a thriving market town that has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
