Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time is not described until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a far larger area than simply the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be applied till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the following decades and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town that has witnessed increased development in modern times.
