Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early relics and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The commune existing at this time was not referred to until 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a substantially larger area than merely the town alone, and covered the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be added on before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
