Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies near the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about 37,000 and a past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic artifacts and coinage unearthed in the area give proof of this fact. The historic Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who used a market in about the tenth century, and relics stumbled upon suggest that they were settling the area quite possibly since the 6th Century. The village existing at that time wasn't documented till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embodied a significantly larger area than just the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town may have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be added prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to various tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
