Located in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard sits very near to the county boundary between Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, when the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Beds), it sits very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there had been settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, age-old relics and coinage found in the area give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans should have at least been aware of the village during those times.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who introduced a market in about the tenth century, and relics uncovered show that they were inhabiting the area probably from the sixth century. The village existing then isn't mentioned till 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, encompassed a way greater area than only the town by itself, and integrated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge 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" part was not put on before the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a variety of tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
