Located in the county of Beds, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins stumbled upon nearby offer evidence of this fact. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled upon show that they were settling the locale most probably from the sixth century. The settlement as such was not discussed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a considerably bigger area than simply the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put in until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
