Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it is placed close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins uncovered nearby show proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics unearthed show that they were inhabiting the vicinity undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not observed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably larger area than just the town itself, and included the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get added before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
