Set within the county of Beds, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to Roman times, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there existed settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this. The old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the local area probably from the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't listed till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a substantially greater area compared to the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put in till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to an assortment of tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
