Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins discovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up mean that they were staying in the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a considerably wider area than just the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put in till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
