Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a past stretching back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled on near by give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were settling the local area almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then isn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a significantly wider area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the following generations and the arrival of a railway service and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town grow and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that's witnessed accelerated development in current times.
