Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to the times of the Romans, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the vicinity probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a lot greater area than merely the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard carried on expanding through the coming generations and the coming of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town that's seen improved development in the last few years.
