Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the boundary between Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market in around the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity most probably from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot larger area than simply the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be put on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on expanding throughout the following years and the coming of a canal and a railway service in the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and expand.
