Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were living in the local area most probably since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't referred to till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a way bigger area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could perhaps have originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be applied till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
