Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the Roman period, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered suggest that they were residing in the locale most likely from the 6th Century. The village existing at this time is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot bigger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
