Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of about thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage picked up nearby offer evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the tenth century, and antiquities picked up indicate that they were settling the area quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't reported till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much bigger area than just the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
