Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not reported until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a considerably larger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put in till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the succeeding decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
