Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is found near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity perhaps since the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't listed until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially greater area than just the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
