Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coinage stumbled on in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were settling the area most probably from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not cited till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a significantly larger area than merely the town alone, and contained the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
