Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins found nearby give proof of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were settling the locale very likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a much wider area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put in up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the following years and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
