Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lies near the Chiltern Hills and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the local area most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not observed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a much larger area than just the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger during the succeeding years and the building of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop.
