Found in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage found in the area offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time is not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a much bigger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not to be included before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow over the ensuing decades and the development of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and evolve. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be described as a prospering market town that's witnessed greater development in the recent past.
