Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a history going back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Beds), it is situated close to the Chilterns and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage unearthed nearby show evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found imply that they were staying in the locale most probably since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a lot greater area than simply the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even bigger over the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway in the Nineteenth Century saw it grow and develop.
