The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were settling the vicinity very likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't observed until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a much greater area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't inserted prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the coming generations and the development of a railway service and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
