Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage discovered near by give proof of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market during the 10th Century, and antiquities found suggest that they were living in the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not observed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a much wider area than simply the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't included until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger over the succeeding years and the establishing of of a railway service and a canal during the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Current day Leighton Buzzard can be termed a thriving market town that's seen accelerated development in the past few years.
