Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area show evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon suggest that they were living in the area almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not referred to until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a much greater area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name could perhaps have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be included up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
