Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the county boundary betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past stretching back to the Roman period, at which time the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the nearby town of Linslade it is about mid-way between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is situated next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's believed that there were settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historic relics and coins stumbled on in close proximity show proof of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities unearthed show that they were residing in the local area in all probability since the 6th Century. The settlement existing at this time was not reported till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) outlined Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a lot greater area than only the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name could very well have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element did not get included up until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
