Based in the county of Beds in the East of England, the tranquil town of Leighton Buzzard sits near the boundary in between Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of around thirty seven thousand and a historic past going back to the Roman period, at which time the historic A5 (then known as Watling St) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is connected to the adjoining town of Linslade and it's roughly halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton (Bedfordshire), it sits very close to the Chilterns and boasts an important sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is considered that there were settlements in or around what is now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, age-old artifacts and coins unearthed in close proximity give evidence of this. The old Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now called the A5, passed through the neighbouring settlements of Dunstable and Hockliffe about two thousand years back, and the Romans should have at least known of the village at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was them who set up the market place sometime in the 10th Century, and artefacts picked up suggest that they were inhabiting the locale undoubtedly since the sixth century. The commune as it was then was not discussed till 906 after the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) identified Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, embodied a significantly larger area than just the town alone, and covered the settlements of Billington, Heath & Reach, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name of the town is thought to originated from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added till the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which was within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to a number of tenants over the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I in the English Civil War (1642-1645).
