Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman era, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed mean that they were settling the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as it was is not reported until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a considerably bigger area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the succeeding generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's seen greater development in the recent past.
