Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand 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 Saxons who created a market during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were staying in the area very likely from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a way greater area compared to the town alone, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added on until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding throughout the ensuing years and the development of a railway and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it expand and develop. Modern Leighton Buzzard is a bustling market town that's witnessed increased development in the past several years.
