Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies very near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins discovered in close proximity give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now termed the A5, came through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in about the tenth century, and relics unearthed imply that they were settling the locale very likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was is not cited till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a way greater area than merely the town itself, and included the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be added on before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants over the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
