Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early relics and coins picked up in the area show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were staying in the vicinity in all probability from the 6th Century. The village existing at this time is not described until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly greater area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the succeeding generations and the development of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's witnessed increased development in recent times.
