Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found next to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage discovered in close proximity show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts picked up reveal that they were living in the region probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a substantially bigger area than merely the town by itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the building of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen improved development in the last few years.
