Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were residing in the area most probably from the sixth century. The village existing then isn't described till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a way wider area than just the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get inserted up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the coming decades and the coming of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
