Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it can be found near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then is not cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially larger area than merely the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be inserted until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the following decades and the establishing of of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town that has witnessed greater development in modern times.
