Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lies near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage uncovered near by offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who introduced the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were staying in the region most probably since the sixth century. The settlement as such is not listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a way bigger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not included before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
