Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to Roman days, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it lies next to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity show proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were inhabiting the region most probably since the 6th Century. The village as it was wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a much wider area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
