Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage stumbled on nearby offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the locale almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement as such is not documented till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a substantially greater area than only the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding throughout the coming years and the coming of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop.
