Location: Bedfordshire, East of England, UK.

Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a historical past harping back to the Roman era, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the nearby town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it stands next to the Chilterns and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered near by show evidence of this. The old Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years back, and the Romans will have at least known of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up a market in about the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed suggest that they were settling the local area possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time wasn't discussed till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, encompassed a lot greater area than just the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be put on till the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
