Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located next to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby show evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed indicate that they were settling the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a much wider area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the succeeding generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand.
