Based in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins uncovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered show that they were residing in the area quite possibly since the sixth century. The village as such wasn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a substantially larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be inserted until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing throughout the following generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop.
