Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a history extending back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins discovered nearby give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered imply that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't discussed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a far larger area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't put on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
