Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage discovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were staying in the area almost certainly since the sixth century. The commune as it was then wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a substantially bigger area than just the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put in before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town carried on growing through the succeeding years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line during the 19th Century saw the town develop and evolve. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that's witnessed improved development in recent times.
