Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage found near by offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed indicate that they were staying in the local area in all probability since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a substantially larger area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put in until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the succeeding decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop.
