Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage discovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up reveal that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot wider area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be applied till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the ensuing decades and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a successful market town which has seen accelerated development in recent years.
