Based in the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of approximately 37,000 and a history extending back to the days of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it stands very close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's felt that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old artefacts and coins picked up in close proximity show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered reveal that they were settling the region more than likely from the 6th Century. The village as it was is not documented until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a lot larger area than just the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be included before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to an assortment of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
