Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were settling the vicinity in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a considerably wider area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding throughout the succeeding years and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen increased development in current times.
