Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage discovered nearby show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were residing in the locale in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement as it was is not cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a significantly bigger area than only the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't appended till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
