Based in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is placed close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered imply that they were settling the locale quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't described until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a significantly wider area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the succeeding decades and the building of a canal and a railway service during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and evolve.
