Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed reveal that they were settling the locale very likely since the 6th Century. The village existing at this time was not listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a far wider area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements 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" part wasn't applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town which has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
