Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman times, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities found imply that they were settling the neighbourhood most probably from the 6th Century. The village existing then wasn't cited till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a way larger area than simply the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard grew even larger throughout the succeeding generations and the arrival of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand.
