Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage going back to Roman days, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coinage uncovered in the area offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The settlement as such wasn't described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a substantially wider area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not appended until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
