Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were dwelling in the locale quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then is not observed until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a substantially bigger area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get inserted till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to numerous tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger through the following years and the building of a railway and a canal during the 19th Century saw it develop and develop. Twenty-first century Leighton Buzzard can be termed a busy market town which has seen improved development in recent years.
