Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard is very near to the county border between Bucks and Beds, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of about thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the era of the Romans, when the ancient A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjoining town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's felt that there were settlements in and close to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old relics and coins unearthed near by give evidence of this fact. The old Watling Street (crafted by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, cut through neighbouring Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years back, and the Romans will have at least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was Saxons who used the market place in about the tenth century, and antiquities picked up suggest that they were residing in the region perhaps since the sixth century. The village as it was was not remarked upon until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, embraced a much greater area than simply the town alone, and covered the settlements of Eggington, Billington, Stanbridge and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to derived from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section wasn't included until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" that existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to several tenants through the centuries, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who backed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
