Based in the county of Beds, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the era of the Romans, when the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins picked up in the area show proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics uncovered imply that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The village as it was isn't observed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a far greater area than merely the town by itself, and included the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to numerous tenants through the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
