Found in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays near the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around 37,000 and a heritage harping back to the Roman period, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's felt that there existed settlements in and close to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who used a market during the tenth century, and relics uncovered suggest that they were settling the locale in all likelihood from the 6th Century. The commune existing at this time wasn't referred to till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embodied a lot greater area than just the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not to be appended up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
