Set within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a story stretching back to Roman days, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is placed near the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins picked up in the area offer proof of this fact. The longstanding Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, came through the nearby towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village as they passed it.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered indicate that they were residing in the neighbourhood in all likelihood from the sixth century. The village as it was is not described till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, encompassed a significantly larger area than merely the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
