Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits right on the boundary between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past harping back to the Roman period, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is linked to the nearby town of Linslade it is approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it can be found near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is thought that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to prehistoric times, age-old relics and coinage stumbled on near by show evidence of this. The age old Watling Street (built by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, passed through close by Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at least known of the village at this time.

The Romans were ultimately followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was they who used the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts uncovered show that they were inhabiting the vicinity most likely since the sixth century. The settlement as such is not observed until 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book reported Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a considerably greater area than just the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the town's name appears to been taken from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece wouldn't be put on up until the 12th Century when the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from the other "Leighton" which was inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a number of tenants over the years, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
