Positioned within the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to Roman times, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place during the tenth century, and relics picked up mean that they were residing in the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was isn't observed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a significantly greater area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
