Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage stumbled upon near by show proof of this. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were staying in the area possibly from the 6th Century. The village existing at this time isn't observed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably wider area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be appended up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the succeeding years and the development of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
