Situated in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard stands very close to the border between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of about 37,000 and a historical past extending back to the Roman period, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and it is roughly midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's believed that there had been settlements in and close to what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, old artefacts and coins picked up near by offer evidence of this. The early Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans will have at least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market in about the tenth century, and artifacts unearthed suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood most likely from the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) described Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, incorporated a considerably greater area than only the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to originated from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not to be inserted before the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the generations, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
