Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins unearthed nearby offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were living in the local area most probably from the 6th Century. The commune as it was isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a much greater area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't put on prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing during the succeeding years and the building of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town which has seen increased development in the recent past.
