Found in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past going back to the days of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who created a market in around the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the locale most probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embraced a significantly larger area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name may likely have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get appended till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
