Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins found near by give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at 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 developed the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered indicate that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood most likely from the 6th Century. The commune existing then wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a substantially larger area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
