Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a story extending back to the era of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage unearthed in the area show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time isn't described till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a significantly bigger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the succeeding generations and the establishing of of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a successful market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
