Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county boundary between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage uncovered in close proximity show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who developed the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the area in all probability since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not cited until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a much larger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not added on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
