Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins picked up near by offer proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were settling the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The commune existing then is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably wider area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding decades and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
