Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the historic Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is found near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is thought that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins found near by give evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe roughly 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and artifacts stumbled on show that they were settling the vicinity possibly since the sixth century. The village existing then was not documented until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a significantly wider area than merely the town alone, and included the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln found it vital to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
