Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to Roman times, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins found in the area show proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities stumbled upon mean that they were settling the vicinity undoubtedly since the 6th Century. The village as it was is not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a lot greater area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).

Leighton Buzzard trainThe settlement carried on expanding during the following decades and the construction of a canal and a railway line in the 19th Century saw the town evolve and develop.
