Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard lies very close to the county boundary between Beds and Buckinghamshire, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a populace of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the times of the Romans, at which time the early Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the neighbouring town of Linslade it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it lies very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard History: It is believed that there had been settlements in or around what's now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, early relics and coinage picked up near by show proof of this. The age-old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the neighbouring settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village as they passed it.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who set up a market sometime in the tenth century, and antiquities picked up show that they were residing in the vicinity quite likely from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was wasn't reported until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over the years, embodied a significantly bigger area than only the town alone, and covered the hamlets of Stanbridge, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Billington. The "Leighton" in the town's name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part wasn't put in prior to the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln needed to differentiate it from a different "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to many different tenants over the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
