Set within the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it lays near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage picked up nearby show evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed indicate that they were residing in the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The village as such wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a way wider area compared to the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put in prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop.
