Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered nearby give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and relics discovered imply that they were inhabiting the locale possibly from the 6th Century. The village as such isn't documented until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a lot larger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name may have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger over the following generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
