Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage picked up in close proximity show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon suggest that they were inhabiting the locale in all likelihood from the sixth century. The commune existing at that time wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a far wider area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not inserted up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding through the following decades and the development of a canal and a railway service in the 19th Century saw it evolve and develop. Present day Leighton Buzzard is a thriving market town that has seen improved development in current times.
