Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the region most likely since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not documented till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a far wider area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town might possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
