Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered near by offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were residing in the area probably since the sixth century. The village as it was then was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be included before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
