Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coinage discovered nearby give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on suggest that they were settling the local area in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a lot bigger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get applied up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding over the coming years and the arrival of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town grow and develop. Today's Leighton Buzzard can be termed a flourishing market town that's seen accelerated development in the past several years.
