Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a heritage harping back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon mean that they were residing in the vicinity undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not discussed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a way bigger area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that has seen increased development in the recent past.
