Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on denote that they were inhabiting the area perhaps since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not observed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a way wider area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that has seen greater development in current times.
