Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were living in the local area perhaps since the 6th Century. The village existing then was not described until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a significantly bigger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow throughout the succeeding years and the appearance of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand.
