Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage uncovered near by give evidence of this fact.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered show that they were residing in the locale undoubtedly from the sixth century. The commune as such was not reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a considerably wider area than only the town itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
