Positioned within the county of Bedfordshire, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lays close to the boundary between Bucks and Beds, on the Grand Union Canal, it has a population of about 37,000 and a past going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historic Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is connected to the neighbouring town of Linslade and it is approximately halfway between Milton Keynes (Bucks) and Luton, it is found next to the Chilterns (Chiltern Hills) and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what is now called Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old relics and coinage found near by give evidence of this. The age-old Watling Street (fashioned by the Romans), now identified as the A5, passed through nearby Hockliffe and Dunstable roughly two thousand years back, and the Romans would have at the very least known of Leighton Buzzard at this time.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was the Anglo-Saxons who set up a market during the tenth century, and relics unearthed indicate that they were inhabiting the region quite possibly since the sixth century. The settlement existing at that time is not described till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book of 1086 talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, traditionally, incorporated a considerably larger area than simply the town itself, and covered the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the name is thought to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" piece was not put on prior to the twelfth century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to distinguish it from another "Leighton" which he had inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton were let to various tenants through the generations, for example the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who supported Charles I through the English Civil War (1642-1645).
