Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies near to the Chilterns and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage unearthed in close proximity show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who were using a market during the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were settling the vicinity undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a considerably larger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow over the succeeding decades and the construction of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and evolve.
