Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a history going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled on in the area offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market during the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon show that they were staying in the region most likely since the sixth century. The village existing at that time wasn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a significantly wider area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not to be put in till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to an assortment of tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
