Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays very near to the county border betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated close to the Chilterns and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical artifacts and coins picked up near by give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artifacts discovered show that they were residing in the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the 6th Century. The commune existing at that time is not referred to till 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a far greater area than merely the town alone, and covered the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name may very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not added on up until the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
