Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered indicate that they were inhabiting the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a substantially larger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it evolve and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town that has witnessed improved development in the past several years.
