Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits near the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage found in close proximity show evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered mean that they were dwelling in the region perhaps since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a substantially greater area than simply the town alone, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger during the ensuing decades and the appearance of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand.
