Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a past stretching back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins picked up near by offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who developed the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities found imply that they were living in the region in all probability from the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time was not documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a significantly greater area than only the town alone, and contained the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't included till the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the centuries, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
