Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered suggest that they were dwelling in the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a considerably larger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the succeeding years and the coming of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town that's witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
