Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays very close to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage unearthed near by give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the area quite likely from the sixth century. The village as it was was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a much greater area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the ensuing generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
