Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to 37,000 and a history stretching back to the Roman era, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it sits near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old relics and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this. The historical Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were staying in the area possibly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't listed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly larger area than simply the town by itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get included before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
