Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were settling the vicinity in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village existing then is not referred to until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a way larger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the following years and the construction of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town which has witnessed greater development in the recent past.
