Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins stumbled upon nearby show proof of this. The early Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were living in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't discussed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a substantially larger area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name may likely have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be applied prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on growing during the succeeding generations and the appearance of a canal and a railway in the 19th Century saw it develop and grow. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a prospering market town that's witnessed increased development in recent times.
