Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary in between Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past stretching back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coins uncovered in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used the market place sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled on show that they were staying in the neighbourhood more than likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not cited till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a far bigger area than just the town itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
