Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins stumbled upon in the area show evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics found show that they were living in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune as such wasn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly bigger area compared to the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger during the coming decades and the appearance of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prospering market town that's seen improved development in the past few years.
