Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a story going back to the times of the Romans, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient artifacts and coins found near by give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and relics found suggest that they were staying in the area probably since the sixth century. The village existing at this time wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a substantially bigger area than only the town itself, and included the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion did not get included prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
