Location: Bedfordshire (Beds), England, UK.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed indicate that they were settling the locale most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time is not discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a far greater area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be put on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
