Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic relics and coins stumbled upon in the area give proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics found show that they were settling the region quite possibly since the 6th Century. The commune as it was then isn't listed until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a way wider area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
