Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to the era of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies next to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is felt that there had been settlements in and near to what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage found nearby show proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts unearthed reveal that they were living in the region probably since the sixth century. The settlement as it was wasn't remarked upon till 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, covered a far wider area than just the town by itself, and comprised the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't applied till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a great many tenants over the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
