Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is found near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found imply that they were staying in the local area undoubtedly since the sixth century. The village as it was then was not listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a substantially bigger area compared to the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following years and the development of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
