Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed mean that they were settling the locale most likely since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time is not cited till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, covered a considerably greater area compared to the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
