Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is found next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were living in the locale probably from the sixth century. The village existing at that time isn't mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a much larger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't inserted till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing throughout the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a thriving market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
