Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the border between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a past going back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were settling the local area possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement existing then wasn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, comprised a lot greater area compared to the town itself, and included the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not put in till the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
