Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard sits near to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman days, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins uncovered in close proximity give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who created the market place during the 10th Century, and relics unearthed show that they were residing in the area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't cited until 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a considerably larger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be appended before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to several tenants through the ages, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
