Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a story harping back to Roman days, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage discovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the local area most likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing then is not listed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a considerably larger area than simply the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
