Leighton Buzzard Facts:

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

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the local area quite possibly from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time was not listed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a considerably wider area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger throughout the succeeding decades and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town expand and develop.
