Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were settling the area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a lot larger area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow.
