Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now called the A5, ran through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood in all probability from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not mentioned until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a lot wider area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
