Set in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to the Roman era, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed indicate that they were living in the vicinity undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement as such is not documented until 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot larger area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name will probably have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put on prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
