Found in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered reveal that they were settling the region perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a lot larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may perhaps have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger through the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop.
