Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins stumbled upon in the area show proof of this. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were settling the neighbourhood in all probability since the 6th Century. The village as it was was not described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a far larger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be put on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the succeeding decades and the coming of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that has seen accelerated development in the past few decades.
