Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, at which time the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found near by offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at 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 a market during the tenth century, and artifacts picked up show that they were dwelling in the region quite likely since the 6th Century. The village as such isn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a considerably larger area than merely the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
