Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of around 37,000 and a heritage stretching back to the times of the Romans, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is roughly mid-way between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there had been settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, historic artifacts and coins found nearby show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (erected by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who used the market place during the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were residing in the area most likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was is not referred to till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a substantially bigger area than just the town alone, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't added on before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it appropriate to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a variety of tenants over the ages, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I throughout the Civil War (1642-1645).
