Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed near by give proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the area possibly since the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a considerably bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
