Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins found in the area show proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts picked up show that they were settling the region most probably since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a way larger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not added till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the ensuing years and the arrival of a railway line and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a busy market town which has seen accelerated development in the recent past.
