Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found show that they were settling the region almost certainly from the 6th Century. The village as such is not mentioned until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a way greater area than only the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following generations and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that has witnessed greater development in recent times.
