Situated within the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about 37,000 and a story harping back to the Roman period, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found in the area show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market in about the tenth century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a lot bigger area than only the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
