Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all probability from the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a substantially larger area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the following decades and the coming of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that's witnessed improved development in the past several years.
