Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered reveal that they were residing in the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't observed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a far wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
