Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the local area undoubtedly from the sixth century. The village existing at that time isn't reported until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a lot bigger area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could possibly have originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get put in till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
