Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to Roman times, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins found in close proximity show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities found show that they were inhabiting the region almost certainly since the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't mentioned until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a significantly greater area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put in up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the coming years and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve. Current day Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few decades.
