Located in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a history extending back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on indicate that they were residing in the region in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not observed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way larger area than simply the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be included before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to several tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the succeeding generations and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw the town develop and develop.
