Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lays near the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were settling the region in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was is not cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a way greater area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the coming years and the development of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and develop.
