Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the era of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered near by show evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed a market during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were residing in the neighbourhood quite possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was is not observed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly greater area than merely the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get applied until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the ensuing decades and the building of a canal and a railway line in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and grow. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
