Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage extending back to Roman times, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in the area show proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the area most probably since the sixth century. The village as it was was not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a considerably bigger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could quite possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement grew even larger through the following years and the coming of a canal and a railway during the Nineteenth Century saw it develop and develop.
