Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on reveal that they were staying in the vicinity quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time was not described till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a substantially wider area than only the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be added on until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the ensuing generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow.
