Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coins unearthed nearby give proof of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts found show that they were staying in the area more than likely since the sixth century. The village existing then is not cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a considerably bigger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
