Population: 37,000

Found in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a story stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found very close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage stumbled on in the area show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a way bigger area than just the town alone, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name could possibly have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be included prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
