Facts for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage stumbled on near by show proof of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on reveal that they were settling the region very likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time isn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much greater area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even larger over the following years and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town which has seen greater development in modern times.
