Set within the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population close to 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the times of the Romans, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it is placed near the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins picked up near by offer evidence of this fact. The historic Watling Street (established by the Romans), now named the A5, went through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on suggest that they were residing in the locale possibly since the 6th Century. The village as such was not cited until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) mentioned Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, incorporated a lot wider area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name may very well have derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on before the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
