Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered indicate that they were settling the vicinity in all probability since the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't listed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a significantly bigger area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't put in up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the succeeding decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town that has seen improved development in recent years.
