Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was then is not discussed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a substantially wider area than only the town itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part did not get added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the ensuing years and the building of a railway service and a canal in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow.
