Based in the county of Bedfordshire in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard stands close to the border in between Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a population of approximately 37,000 and a historic past harping back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. These days Leighton Buzzard is attached to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it lies near the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coinage found in close proximity show proof of this. The age old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, went through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 yrs ago, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were eventually followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who set up the market place in around the tenth century, and artifacts uncovered suggest that they were staying in the area most probably since the 6th Century. The village as such wasn't remarked upon until 906 after the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 recognised Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a far greater area than simply the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Stanbridge, Billington and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name will probably have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get applied up until the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to several tenants through the centuries, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
