Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it sits next to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up imply that they were residing in the vicinity most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was was not cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a much wider area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't included up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the following years and the development of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a flourishing market town which has seen increased development in recent times.
