Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a heritage extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is located near the Chiltern Hills and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage found near by offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were inhabiting the local area most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was then isn't listed till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a much greater area compared to the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not appended till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town continued to grow through the succeeding generations and the establishing of of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a successful market town that's witnessed greater development in the past few years.
