Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a history going back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins stumbled upon near by offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market in around the tenth century, and relics found suggest that they were inhabiting the area most probably since the sixth century. The settlement existing then isn't documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much larger area compared to the town by itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be applied prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
