Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who created the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were settling the local area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune existing then is not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially larger area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be appended up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on growing over the ensuing decades and the coming of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow.
