Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there existed settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and relics picked up show that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood very likely since the 6th Century. The commune as such is not discussed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a substantially wider area than only the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not to be added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to several tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
