Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were living in the vicinity more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a way bigger area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger during the ensuing decades and the coming of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has seen improved development in the past few decades.
