Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is found close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins found nearby offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (established by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place sometime in the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were dwelling in the vicinity undoubtedly since the sixth century. The settlement as such was not mentioned until 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a lot wider area than only the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be put in up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
