Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is very close to the boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about 37,000 and a story going back to the Roman era, when the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coins stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who developed a market in around the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were residing in the local area in all likelihood since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at that time was not observed until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, encompassed a far larger area compared to the town itself, and integrated the settlements of Billington, Stanbridge, Heath & Reach and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name appears to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't added on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to many different tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
