Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard is close to the county border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits next to the Chiltern Hills and has a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early artefacts and coins stumbled on nearby give proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and relics unearthed suggest that they were settling the area possibly from the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't referred to till 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a far greater area compared to the town itself, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't appended before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it essential to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants through the eras, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
