Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a history going back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found near by offer evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found reveal that they were settling the region very likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't listed until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a far bigger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't appended up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the coming decades and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town which has witnessed increased development in recent years.
