Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artifacts and coinage uncovered nearby show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who developed the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found show that they were inhabiting the area almost certainly from the 6th Century. The village as such was not cited till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a significantly larger area than simply the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put on till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to many different tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
