Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage found in the area give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts found show that they were inhabiting the vicinity almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then isn't cited until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a much larger area compared to the town by itself, and included the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be included till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the following generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a busy market town that has seen greater development in recent years.
