Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were staying in the local area in all probability since the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a lot bigger area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get applied before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
