Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past harping back to the Roman era, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it lies close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name might possibly have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the coming generations and the development of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has witnessed accelerated development in modern times.
