Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman times, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't referred to till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get appended prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the following years and the building of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow.
