Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located next to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage picked up near by show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the local area possibly since the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a lot wider area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop.
