Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the market town of Leighton Buzzard is near to the county border in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a story harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the early A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjacent town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it is placed close to the Chilterns and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is felt that there were settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard stretching back to prehistoric times, historic relics and coinage unearthed near by give evidence of this fact. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered indicate that they were residing in the local area probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as such wasn't reported until 906 at which time the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, comprised a way greater area than merely the town itself, and comprised the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wouldn't be included prior to the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be leased to a great many tenants through the generations, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
