Positioned in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around 37,000 and a story stretching back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who created a market in around the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity probably from the sixth century. The settlement existing then wasn't described till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embraced a substantially larger area than merely the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on till the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
