Located in the county of Beds, the small town of Leighton Buzzard is right on the county boundary in between Bedfordshire and Bucks, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a resident population of approximately thirty seven thousand and a heritage harping back to the Roman era, when the ancient Watling St (now the A-5) passed by the town. Today Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade it is approximately mid-way between Luton (Beds) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located very close to the Chiltern Hills (Chilterns) and boasts a vital sand quarrying industry.

The History of Leighton Buzzard: It is believed that there existed settlements in and near to what is now called Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, ancient relics and coinage found in the area show evidence of this. The historical Watling Street (put up by the Romans), now identified as the A5, cut through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable around 2,000 years ago, and the Romans should have at the very least been aware of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was them who introduced a market in about the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered imply that they were residing in the locale very likely from the sixth century. The settlement as it was then wasn't mentioned until 906 after the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the 1086 Domesday Book recognised Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in the past, encompassed a lot larger area compared to the town itself, and consisted of the hamlets of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town will have come from the old English for "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" section was not put in prior to the 12th Century after the Dean of Lincoln wanted to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that he had within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were leased to a number of tenants through the eras, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who followed Charles I throughout the English Civil War (1642-1645).
