The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed mean that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a lot greater area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the following generations and the building of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop.
