Positioned in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to 37,000 and a history stretching back to Roman days, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coins discovered nearby offer evidence of this. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were staying in the region probably since the 6th Century. The village as such is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a way larger area than simply the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get put on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to numerous tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
