Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the era of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were residing in the local area in all probability since the 6th Century. The commune as such was not listed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially larger area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the coming decades and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a growing market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the past few decades.
