Found in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coins stumbled upon near by offer proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and antiquities picked up show that they were settling the neighbourhood most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not remarked upon till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a significantly greater area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be appended until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow during the succeeding generations and the coming of a railway and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a booming market town that has witnessed accelerated development in the past few years.
