Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed nearby show proof of this. The early Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics discovered denote that they were residing in the area possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a substantially greater area than only the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name will have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
