Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historical Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found near to the Chilterns and has a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coinage discovered nearby offer evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was Saxons who were using a market in about the 10th Century, and relics picked up suggest that they were settling the area more than likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was was not reported until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a lot larger area than only the town alone, and included the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get inserted before the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to an assortment of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
