Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the region quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time isn't documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly greater area compared to the town itself, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name might have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added on before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing throughout the ensuing years and the appearance of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard is a growing market town which has witnessed greater development in current times.
