Leighton Buzzard Facts:

Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were settling the neighbourhood quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a far bigger area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get appended up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the following generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand.
