Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed reveal that they were residing in the region undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then is not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the coming years and the building of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town evolve and develop.
