Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins uncovered in close proximity give proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on indicate that they were residing in the region more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a far greater area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be applied until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
