Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were settling the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't discussed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a lot greater area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the development of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
