Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins discovered in the area offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were dwelling in the area undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The settlement as such was not mentioned till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a significantly larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the succeeding decades and the building of a railway line and a canal in the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand.
