Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to Roman times, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins discovered near by offer proof of this. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, went through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered show that they were staying in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the 6th Century.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a way greater area than only the town by itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
