Situated within the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays very close to the border in between Bucks and Bedfordshire, on the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to 37,000 and a past going back to Roman days, when the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed by the town. Presently Leighton Buzzard is connected to the nearby town of Linslade and it's about halfway between Luton and Milton Keynes, it is placed near to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It's felt that there were settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard harping back to unrecorded times, early artifacts and coinage found near by give evidence of this. The ancient Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now known as the A5, passed through the neighbouring towns of Dunstable and Hockliffe around about 2,000 years back, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and artefacts stumbled upon reveal that they were settling the area more than likely from the sixth century. The village as it was then is not cited till 906 when the Danes produced a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) named Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, incorporated a considerably wider area compared to the town alone, and comprised the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Billington, Stanbridge and Eggington. The "Leighton" in the name seems to come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece did not get added on prior to the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were tenanted to many different tenants over the ages, including the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I in the Civil War (1642-1645).
