Based in the county of Beds, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past going back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it can be found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, age-old artefacts and coinage stumbled on nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were residing in the locale most probably from the 6th Century. The commune as it was isn't remarked upon till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a way greater area compared to the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wasn't applied up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
