Based in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county border betwixt Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and artefacts discovered mean that they were residing in the area quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't discussed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a substantially greater area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name will have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow during the succeeding years and the construction of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town which has witnessed accelerated development in the past several years.
