Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coins uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The historical Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now known as the A5, went through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who developed a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the local area most likely since the 6th Century. The village as such was not cited until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 reported Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a much bigger area than merely the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be inserted till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to numerous tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
