Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the region perhaps from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a much larger area than simply the town alone, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
