Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the locale most likely since the 6th Century. The village as such is not reported until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly bigger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a busy market town that has seen improved development in the recent past.
