Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies near to the county boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past going back to the Roman period, when the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it sits close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, historical artefacts and coins found nearby show evidence of this fact. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in about the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the region more than likely since the sixth century. The commune as it was wasn't reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a considerably wider area compared to the town alone, and integrated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town could have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wouldn't be included up until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
