Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic relics and coinage stumbled upon in the area give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled on indicate that they were staying in the vicinity quite possibly from the 6th Century. The commune existing then is not described till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding over the coming decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
