Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is situated very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coins picked up in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were staying in the region probably from the sixth century. The commune as such isn't documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a far larger area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the coming years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a flourishing market town that's seen greater development in current times.
