Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coinage uncovered nearby give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market in around the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were residing in the local area in all probability from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not referred to until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a significantly larger area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
