Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the era of the Romans, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it can be found next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard long ago in unrecorded times, historic artefacts and coinage unearthed near by show proof of this fact. The historical Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were subsequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities discovered indicate that they were settling the vicinity undoubtedly from the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time isn't discussed until 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a substantially wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be appended until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to various tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
