Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to Roman times, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the area in all probability since the 6th Century. The village existing then is not cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a lot greater area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get inserted before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the coming years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's witnessed improved development in the past few decades.
