Positioned in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the boundary in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is located near the Chiltern Hills and has a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins discovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The historic Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand 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 them who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up show that they were inhabiting the vicinity possibly since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't discussed till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, comprised a lot wider area than just the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will probably have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
