Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a story harping 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 believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (built by the Romans), now called the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were living in the region undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement as such isn't mentioned till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a much greater area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name might have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
