Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, United Kingdom.

Population: 37,000

Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a past going back to Roman times, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lies near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in prehistoric times, age-old artifacts and coins stumbled upon nearby give proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now named the A5, ran through the nearby settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe some two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who were using a market in around the 10th Century, and artefacts discovered imply that they were living in the local area almost certainly from the sixth century. The commune as such is not reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embraced a substantially wider area than only the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't inserted before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it desirable to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
