Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the border betwixt Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about 37,000 and a heritage going back to Roman days, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage found nearby offer proof of this fact. The old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on mean that they were inhabiting the locale in all probability from the 6th Century. The commune as such is not reported till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a lot wider area than simply the town itself, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not put on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
