Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located near the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the area most likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a far wider area than only the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get applied prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding years and the appearance of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
