Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past going back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were inhabiting the region probably from the sixth century. The village existing then was not described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially bigger area than simply the town by itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that has seen increased development in the last few years.
