Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a history stretching back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins unearthed in the area show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities discovered show that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all probability since the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a far larger area than simply the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger through the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
