Situated in the county of Beds, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands near to the border between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it can be found very close to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in and near to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, ancient artefacts and coinage discovered near by offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 in years past, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who introduced a market during the tenth century, and relics discovered mean that they were inhabiting the vicinity undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time wasn't remarked upon till 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably wider area than merely the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Heath & Reach, Eggington and BIllington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't appended before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
