Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled on near by show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who created a market during the tenth century, and antiquities discovered denote that they were living in the locale perhaps since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time is not referred to until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a way bigger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe town grew even bigger over the following generations and the coming of a railway and a canal during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop. Contemporary Leighton Buzzard can be termed a growing market town which has seen increased development in the past several years.
