Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the county border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historical past harping back to Roman days, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage found nearby give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artifacts found show that they were residing in the region almost certainly from the sixth century. The village as such is not referred to till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a much greater area compared to the town alone, and included 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" component wouldn't be added on up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
