Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage picked up near by give proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who introduced the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts found suggest that they were living in the vicinity quite likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't listed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a significantly wider area than just the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be applied till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
