Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the region very likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a much wider area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name will have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the coming generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town which has seen increased development in current times.
