Set in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman era, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered show that they were settling the vicinity very likely from the sixth century. The village as it was then wasn't referred to till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a much greater area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not applied till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing during the ensuing years and the establishing of of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop.
