Set within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in the area show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune existing then isn't described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a much bigger area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger throughout the coming decades and the arrival of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town expand and develop.
