Found in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman period, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage discovered near by offer evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably since the 6th Century. The settlement as it was isn't discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a significantly larger area than merely the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
