Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 in years past, and the Romans would have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were living in the local area possibly from the sixth century. The commune as it was is not remarked upon till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a significantly larger area than only the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get appended before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
