About Leighton Buzzard
The town is home to the Leighton Buzzard Light Railway, a narrow gauge heritage railway, one of England's longest at just under 3 miles (4.8 km) long and oldest narrow-gauge lines, with an extensive collection of locomotives and rolling stock. The Great Train Robbery happened at Bridego Bridge just outside Leighton Buzzard. The Grand Union Canal is another feature of the town, as is All Saints' Church, an Early English parish church dating from 1277. The church is the starting point for the annual Wilkes Walk, described as "a curious procession of the church choir, clergy, and churchwardens across town to the alms houses in North Street."
There are a number of theories concerning the derivation of the town's name; "Leighton" came from Old English Lēah-tūn, meaning 'farm in a clearing in the woods', and "Buzzard" was added by the Dean of Lincoln, in whose diocese the town lay in the 12th century, from Beau-desert, which later turned into "Buzzard". Another version is that having two communities called "Leighton" and seeking some means of differentiating them, the Dean added the name of his local Prebendary or representative to that of the town. At that time it was a Theobald de Busar and so over the years the town became known as Leighton Buzzard. The other Leighton became Leighton Bromswold.
