Information for Leighton Buzzard:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits next to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage unearthed nearby give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were settling the region most likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not reported till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the succeeding years and the building of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
