Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage uncovered in the area offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the local area most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then wasn't referred to till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly bigger area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may likely have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put in prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow during the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that has witnessed increased development in current times.
