Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated next to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins uncovered in close proximity give evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon mean that they were residing in the neighbourhood most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time was not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a significantly larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get included up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a great many tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
