Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the area in all probability since the sixth century. The village existing then was not observed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a much greater area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name will have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the coming generations and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a booming market town that's seen greater development in recent times.
