Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coins discovered in the area give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who developed a market during the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon imply that they were inhabiting the vicinity possibly since the 6th Century. The village existing then was not remarked upon until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a way larger area than only the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be put in till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following decades and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve.
