Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early relics and coins unearthed in the area show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 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 followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used a market during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the area possibly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time isn't observed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a much larger area than only the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
