Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered indicate that they were inhabiting the area probably from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time is not observed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot bigger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name will probably have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding throughout the ensuing generations and the coming of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
