Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artefacts and coinage found in close proximity give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were staying in the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as it was then is not listed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far larger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the following decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
