Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins found nearby offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered imply that they were settling the local area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not observed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way greater area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
