Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the quiet town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary betwixt Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman days, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is more or less connected to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it is situated close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It's thought that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard stretching back to unrecorded times, ancient relics and coins discovered in close proximity show proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (established by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard during those times.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market in around the 10th Century, and antiquities uncovered suggest that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood undoubtedly from the sixth century. The village existing then is not cited until 906 at which time the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 documented Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a lot wider area than just the town by itself, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the town's name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion was not applied prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" which he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a great many tenants through the eras, such as the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
