Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is near the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman days, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in the area show proof of this fact. The age-old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now termed the A5, went through the nearby areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who created the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts stumbled on suggest that they were inhabiting the region most probably from the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a way greater area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be appended before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
