Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage discovered in the area give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity most likely from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time isn't observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much greater area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
