Population: 37,000

Situated in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it can be found near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were inhabiting the locale perhaps from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far larger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
