Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities picked up reveal that they were inhabiting the area quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time was not described till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a lot wider area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town which has witnessed greater development in the recent past.
