Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historical past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage uncovered in close proximity show proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed denote that they were residing in the local area quite likely since the sixth century. The settlement as such is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, covered a far larger area than merely the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be appended prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
