Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities found show that they were inhabiting the local area more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as such is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably larger area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the succeeding decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that has seen increased development in recent years.
