Based in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a heritage extending back to the Roman period, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled on near by offer evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were thereafter followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics discovered suggest that they were residing in the area probably from the sixth century. The commune as such is not listed till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, encompassed a much wider area than only the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be appended prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
