Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a story extending back to the Roman period, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins uncovered nearby offer evidence of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then is not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a substantially greater area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't appended prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
