Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity give proof of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were residing in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune existing then was not described till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, comprised a significantly wider area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow throughout the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve.
