Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage discovered nearby show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed show that they were settling the locale perhaps from the 6th Century. The village existing then is not cited till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a substantially larger area than merely the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't appended up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the coming years and the construction of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in the recent past.
