Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage stumbled upon nearby give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market in about the tenth century, and relics found show that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a substantially greater area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding over the ensuing generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a blooming market town that's witnessed greater development in modern times.
