Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were residing in the neighbourhood very likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was was not reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a far bigger area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the succeeding generations and the appearance of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town develop and grow. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in the recent past.
