Situated within the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the delightful town of Leighton Buzzard stands very near to the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about thirty seven thousand and a historical past harping back to the era of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is more or less joined to the adjacent town of Linslade and is about midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is found very close to the Chilterns and has an important quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there were settlements in and close to what is now known as Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coins picked up in the area give evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through the nearby settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were in turn followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and antiquities stumbled on reveal that they were settling the neighbourhood possibly since the sixth century. The village as it was wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, incorporated a much greater area than just the town by itself, and integrated the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" part was not applied before the twelfth century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from another "Leighton" that was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to a variety of tenants through the years, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who helped Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
