Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins found nearby offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were staying in the area most probably from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time isn't reported till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a significantly larger area than merely the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a variety of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainLeighton Buzzard continued to grow over the ensuing years and the coming of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop.
