Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history going back to the era of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage picked up near by offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were residing in the region possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then wasn't observed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a way greater area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants over the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
