Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed very close to the Chilterns and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were residing in the area more than likely from the sixth century. The village existing at this time was not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much wider area than simply the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not appended up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the following years and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prospering market town which has seen increased development in the past few decades.
