Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman times, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coinage picked up nearby give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood in all probability since the sixth century. The village as it was was not listed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a substantially bigger area than simply the town itself, and contained the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
