Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found in close proximity give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon indicate that they were staying in the area very likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a considerably wider area than merely the town alone, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name could quite possibly have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the coming decades and the arrival of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard is a successful market town that's seen improved development in recent years.
