Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lays very close to the Chilterns and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coins found in close proximity give evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (built by the Romans), now identified as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on imply that they were settling the vicinity quite possibly from the 6th Century. The settlement existing then isn't cited till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly greater area compared to the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. 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 inserted till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing through the coming generations and the arrival of a canal and a railway service during the 19th Century saw it expand and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be referred to as a prospering market town which has seen improved development in the recent past.
