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

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage stumbled on near by give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered mean that they were living in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a way greater area than only the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding through the following generations and the establishing of of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
