Population: 37,000

Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up nearby offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were settling the area most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a way greater area compared to the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
