Leighton Buzzard Factfile:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands next to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered indicate that they were residing in the local area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village as it was is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a far larger area than simply the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the coming years and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop.
