Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coinage stumbled on nearby give evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market during the 10th Century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were residing in the locale perhaps since the 6th Century. The village existing then isn't remarked upon until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embodied a substantially bigger area than just the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't added until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
