Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to the Roman period, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjoining town of Linslade and it is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is located very close to the Chilterns and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It's believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coinage picked up nearby give proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement as they passed it.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who were using the market place in about the tenth century, and relics picked up show that they were settling the vicinity most probably from the 6th Century. The commune as such was not documented till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, embraced a much larger area compared to the town alone, and consisted of the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component did not get put on until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a second "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
