Located in the county of Beds in the East of England, the small town of Leighton Buzzard sits very close to the border betwixt Beds and Buckinghamshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the Roman period, when the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is linked to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a substantial quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, early relics and coins found in close proximity offer proof of this fact. The ancient Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through the close by areas of Dunstable and Hockliffe around two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were later followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who were using a market sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up mean that they were inhabiting the neighbourhood quite likely since the sixth century. The village as such was not mentioned until 906 at which time the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book documented Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, embodied a far larger area than merely the town itself, and incorporated the settlements of Billington, Eggington, Heath & Reach and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element wouldn't be applied before the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from yet another "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants through the years, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I during the English Civil War (1642-1645).
