Situated in the county of Bedfordshire, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lays near to the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a story harping back to Roman times, when the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it lays very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there existed settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coinage uncovered in the area show evidence of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through close by Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered suggest that they were staying in the neighbourhood almost certainly since the 6th Century. The village as it was then isn't reported till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, embraced a substantially bigger area compared to the town by itself, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not added on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it necessary to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to an assortment of tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
