Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins uncovered nearby offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon reveal that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a far bigger area than merely the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't inserted before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
