Found in the county of Beds, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the border in between Beds and Bucks, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a story going back to the days of the Romans, when the historical Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire), it lays near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coinage stumbled upon in close proximity show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 in years past, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place during the 10th Century, and relics stumbled on show that they were inhabiting the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The commune as such is not documented till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, covered a lot bigger area than only the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section did not get added up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a great many tenants over the ages, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
