Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to Roman times, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found close to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's thought that there had been settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historical artefacts and coins unearthed near by show evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who set up the market place in about the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered imply that they were settling the neighbourhood very likely from the sixth century. The village existing at this time was not referred to till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a lot bigger area compared to the town itself, and incorporated the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be put on up until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln had to distinguish it from another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to various tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
