Population: 37,000

Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to the Roman period, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the locale possibly since the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be appended till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
