Based in the county of Bedfordshire, the busy town of Leighton Buzzard is near the boundary in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, the town has a resident population of around 37,000 and a historic past harping back to Roman days, at which time the Roman built A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is placed near the Chiltern Hills and has a vital sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, ancient artefacts and coins stumbled upon in the area offer proof of this. The ancient Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, cut through the close by settlements of Hockliffe and Dunstable some two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least known of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed the Romans, and it was they who used a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts unearthed show that they were dwelling in the locale possibly since the sixth century. The commune existing at that time was not documented till 906 after the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book listed Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, covered a way greater area than merely the town by itself, and incorporated the settlements of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wasn't included up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln found it crucial to distinguish it from the other "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to numerous tenants over the years, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
