Set in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population close to 37,000 and a historical past going back to the Roman era, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage found near by offer evidence of this. The longstanding Watling Street (made by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable approximately 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was them who created a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the vicinity quite possibly from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not observed till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, covered a much larger area than simply the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wouldn't be included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to various tenants through the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
