Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to Roman days, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins unearthed in the area give evidence of this. The early Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the region in all likelihood since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not discussed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a significantly greater area than simply the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
