Located in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman period, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical relics and coinage stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon show that they were dwelling in the neighbourhood quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time was not observed until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a far bigger area than merely the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name appears to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not put on until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
