Location: Bedfordshire, England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins discovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who used the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed show that they were inhabiting the local area in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was was not cited till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly larger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't inserted prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
