Factfile for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were living in the area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time isn't observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a significantly greater area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the coming years and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
