Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is near the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a story extending back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, historical relics and coins picked up in the area offer evidence of this. The olden Watling Street (made by the Romans), now identified as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand yrs ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place in around the 10th Century, and artifacts found suggest that they were settling the locale in all likelihood from the sixth century. The settlement existing at this time is not reported till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a considerably greater area compared to the town by itself, and contained the settlements of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be added on prior to the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a number of tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
