Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a past stretching back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement as such isn't documented till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a way wider area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get appended before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the following years and the arrival of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
