Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early relics and coins stumbled upon in the area give evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on denote that they were dwelling in the region quite possibly since the sixth century. The village existing then wasn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a way greater area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may perhaps have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
