Leighton Buzzard Information:

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

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a past harping back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were settling the locale most likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not reported till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a way larger area than just the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the coming generations and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's witnessed accelerated development in recent times.
