Found in the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity offer evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The commune existing at this time was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a lot wider area than just the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be put in prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a number of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
