Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history stretching back to Roman times, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage discovered near by give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who set up a market during the 10th Century, and relics unearthed mean that they were residing in the locale in all probability from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time was not described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a far bigger area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't inserted prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has witnessed improved development in the last few years.
