Positioned within the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were residing in the neighbourhood perhaps from the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way greater area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the succeeding years and the coming of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in current times.
