Best-known as the home of the five-mile narrow-gauge Leighton Buzzard Light Railway, this market town lies on the banks of the River Great Ouse and boasts a restored 15th century cross and a palatial mansion, Mentmore, whose design was based on that of Nottingham’s Elizabethan Wollaton Hall.

The village’s 13th century church has a 190ft spire and has been described as a regional ‘cathedral’.
