Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage found near by show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics found indicate that they were staying in the locale most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a significantly larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't added prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has witnessed increased development in current times.
