Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in the area offer evidence of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were staying in the region more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then was not observed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a far wider area than simply the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't applied until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the following generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop.
