Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were inhabiting the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The village existing at that time was not reported until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a much greater area than only the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the following generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a booming market town which has witnessed improved development in the recent past.
