Kitchen splashbacks in Leighton Buzzard

Leighton Buzzard is a town in Bedfordshire, near the Chiltern Hills and lying between Luton and Milton Keynes. It adjoins Linslade and the name Leighton Buzzard is sometimes used to refer to the combination of the two towns.

Splashbacks of Distinction don't just fit toughened glass splashbacks in kitchens! We frequently manufacture bespoke shower enclosures, worktops and shelving too.

A recent project was in Leighton Buzzard, for a client who had an impressive fossil collection and wanted a wall of toughened glass shelves on a tinted glass backing to show of the unusual collection. With the discreet spotlights, the glass shelving and backing really showed off her fossil collection beautifully. Who says old and new don't mix?

History of Leighton Buzzard

It's not clear when Leighton Buzzard was initially founded, although some historians believe that there may have been settlement in the area from as early as 571. There are a number of theories concerning the derivation of the towns name; Leighton came from Old English Leah-tun, meaning farm in a clearing in the woods, and Buzzard was added by the Dean of Lincoln, in whose diocese the town lay in the 12th century, from Beau-desert, which later turned into Buzzard. Another version is that having two communities called Leighton and seeking some means of differentiating them, the Dean added the name of his local Prebendary or representative to that of the town. At that time it was a Theobald de Busar and so over the years the town became known as Leighton Buzzard. The other Leighton became Leighton Bromswold. In the Domesday Book, Leighton Buzzard and Linslade were both called Leestone.

Leighton Buzzard developed into a thriving market town, supported by good road, canal and later, rail links to the agricultural hinterland and London. The market in Leighton Buzzard was granted its charter in 1086 and is still active today. The Leighton Buzzard high street is home to numerous historical buildings, including over seventy of which are listed. These include the notable Bank Building on the Market Square, designed by the eminent architect Alfred Waterhouse, designer of Londons Natural History Museum, London.

Leighton Buzzard has had a long association with the Rothschild family, since Lionel de Rothschild bought neighbouring farmlands to the west of the town in 1873. Over time the farm developed into the Ascott House estate located less than two miles from the town. Over the years several members of the family were resident in the town including Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild at Leighton House on the High Street and the widowed Lady Rothschild who, in 1832, moved to Southcourt House on Orchard Drive. The family still maintain links with the town through their ownership of Southcourt Stud in Southcote.

Quakers in Leighton Buzzard

Leighton Buzzard has a strong history of dissenters and is home to one of the oldest Friends meeting houses in the region. Established in the 18th century, local Quakers continue to meet in the Meeting House on North Street.

After the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834 Leighton Buzzard became the centre of a poor law union that consisted of fifteen surrounding parishes with the union workhouse being sited in Grovebury Road.

During World War II, a secret codebreaking and communications facility, described as the largest telephone exchange in the world, similar to nearby Bletchley Park, operated from Oxenden House off Plantation Road. The facility employed up to 500 people during the war, although it was shrouded in secrecy.

The Great Train Robbery and its link to Leighton Buzzard

The Great Train Robbery happened at Bridego Bridge just outside Leighton Buzzard itself. The robbers were held at the Old Police Station on Wing Road, Linslade while waiting to be seen by the local Magistrate upon capture a month after the robbery.

Leighton Buzzard station was the location for part of the film Robbery, which is based on the Great Train Robbery.
