Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coins discovered in the area give evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were dwelling in the region almost certainly since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was was not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a substantially wider area than merely the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
