Located in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a history extending back to the era of the Romans, at which time the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coins unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on show that they were residing in the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The commune existing at this time isn't described till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a lot wider area compared to the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a number of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
