Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, old relics and coinage discovered near by give proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and antiquities found suggest that they were dwelling in the area in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't observed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a much greater area than simply the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the succeeding generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town which has seen improved development in the past few decades.
