Located in the county of Bedfordshire, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands right on the county boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a history harping back to the Roman era, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it lays next to the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is considered that there existed settlements in and near to what's now known as Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, historical relics and coinage discovered nearby give proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe over 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at least known of the village at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and artefacts found suggest that they were living in the area probably from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then was not discussed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a substantially larger area compared to the town alone, and incorporated the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town seems to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not to be inserted up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it beneficial to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to numerous tenants through the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
