Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and artefacts discovered mean that they were dwelling in the locale probably from the sixth century. The settlement as such isn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a far greater area than merely the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not put on before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the building of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop.
