Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a story going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins uncovered near by give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't described till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a far wider area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing over the succeeding generations and the building of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
