Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a story extending back to Roman times, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins picked up nearby show proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on imply that they were inhabiting the area more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't described till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a significantly bigger area than just the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
