Located in the county of Beds, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to the Roman period, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins found near by offer proof of this. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using a market during the tenth century, and artifacts found imply that they were staying in the area possibly from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a substantially bigger area compared to the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get put in prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
