Located in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the border betwixt Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman times, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic relics and coins found in close proximity show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now known as the A5, ran through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered reveal that they were residing in the neighbourhood possibly from the 6th Century. The commune as it was then was not mentioned till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a considerably greater area than simply the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name might have been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it imperative to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
