Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the bustling town of Leighton Buzzard lays right on the border in between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a resident population close to 37,000 and a historic past extending back to the times of the Romans, when the early Watling St (now the A-5) passed the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is attached to the adjacent town of Linslade and it's approximately midway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and has an important sand quarrying industry.

The Story of Leighton Buzzard: It is thought that there were settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard harping back to prehistoric times, old artifacts and coinage discovered in the area offer proof of this fact. The age old Watling Street (established by the Romans), now termed the A5, passed through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand in years past, and the Romans should have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who introduced a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts picked up suggest that they were living in the neighbourhood probably from the 6th Century. The settlement as it was then was not documented till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, typically, encompassed a substantially larger area compared to the town alone, and contained the hamlets of Eggington, Heath & Reach, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to derived from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" element was not added until the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln needed to distinguish it from an extra "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a variety of tenants through the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
