Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, early relics and coinage unearthed nearby offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not mentioned till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embodied a considerably wider area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name might possibly have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be included prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
