Found in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the county border in between Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historical past going back to the times of the Romans, at which time the ancient Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much connected to the adjacent town of Linslade and is approximately midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located near to the Chiltern Hills and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's considered that there were settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artefacts and coins uncovered in close proximity offer proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (engineered by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by towns of Hockliffe and Dunstable over two thousand years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at this time.

The Romans were consequently followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was Saxons who used a market sometime in the tenth century, and relics stumbled on reveal that they were dwelling in the vicinity quite possibly from the sixth century. The commune existing then is not remarked upon until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, covered a considerably bigger area than just the town by itself, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wasn't appended till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to various tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
