Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of about 37,000 and a historic past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, early relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered denote that they were dwelling in the area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much larger area than simply the town itself, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be put in up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to several tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
