Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays near the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered nearby offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were inhabiting the region very likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a lot bigger area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow throughout the coming decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town that has witnessed increased development in the past few years.
