Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the county border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman era, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage found in close proximity offer evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood most likely from the sixth century. The village existing then isn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much greater area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen accelerated development in the past several years.
