Based in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found very close to the Chiltern Hills and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins picked up in the area give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled upon denote that they were settling the vicinity quite likely from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't cited until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a far bigger area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement continued to grow through the ensuing generations and the construction of a canal and a railway during the 19th Century saw it grow and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a prosperous market town that's seen accelerated development in current times.
