Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

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

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who introduced a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a substantially greater area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the following decades and the development of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop.
