Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage discovered nearby show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts discovered show that they were staying in the vicinity most probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly wider area than just the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name will have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the ensuing generations and the construction of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop.
