The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
