Situated within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman days, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins picked up near by give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were staying in the area quite possibly from the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a lot wider area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't included up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even bigger over the following generations and the coming of a railway line and a canal in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop. Modern day Leighton Buzzard can be described as a blooming market town that's witnessed increased development in recent years.
