Situated in the county of Beds, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it sits close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered in the area offer evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered denote that they were settling the vicinity perhaps since the sixth century. The village as it was then wasn't documented until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a lot greater area than just the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to many different tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing over the succeeding decades and the building of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw the town develop and expand. Present day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prosperous market town that's witnessed increased development in modern times.
