Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage uncovered near by offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics discovered show that they were inhabiting the local area almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a much bigger area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the succeeding decades and the construction of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be described as a growing market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the last few years.
