Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, ran through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who created the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were settling the neighbourhood possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was then was not remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a way larger area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
