Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage unearthed near by offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on denote that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood perhaps since the sixth century. The village existing then isn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a substantially wider area than only the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the coming decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and expand.
