Leighton Buzzard Information:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage found near by show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities found denote that they were settling the neighbourhood possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time wasn't described till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the following decades and the development of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a flourishing market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
