Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county boundary between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historical past extending back to Roman times, when the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage uncovered in the area give evidence of this fact. The early Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, came through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were residing in the area in all probability from the sixth century. The village as it was is not documented until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a much wider area than only the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not applied before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
