Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to 37,000 and a past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used the market place in around the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the sixth century. The village as it was then isn't referred to until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, comprised a far bigger area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not appended up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
