Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard lies right on the border between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a historic past extending back to Roman times, when the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade it is about midway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands next to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, early artefacts and coins discovered in the area show proof of this. The old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now termed the A5, cut through the neighbouring areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe about 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who created a market in around the tenth century, and antiquities picked up imply that they were living in the neighbourhood almost certainly from the sixth century. The settlement as such wasn't listed till 906 when the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book recognized Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, comprised a significantly bigger area than just the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. 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 to be inserted till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln found it a necessity to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to many different tenants through the centuries, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
