Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the boundary betwixt Beds and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a history harping back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it stands near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins uncovered in the area give proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were settling the local area almost certainly since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time wasn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a lot wider area than merely the town itself, and integrated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be added until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln found it important to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
