Set within the county of Beds, the smallish town of Leighton Buzzard stands near the county border betwixt Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace of around thirty seven thousand and a past harping back to the days of the Romans, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling St) passed by the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the neighbouring town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes and Luton, it stands close to the Chilterns and boasts a substantial sand quarrying industry.

Leighton Buzzard Historic Past: It is believed that there had been settlements in and near to what's now named Leighton Buzzard way back in unrecorded times, historical relics and coins unearthed nearby offer proof of this. The olden Watling Street (set up by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, ran through neighbouring Dunstable and Hockliffe approximately two thousand years ago, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of Leighton Buzzard at that time.

The Romans were followed by the Anglo-Saxons, and it was them who set up a market during the 10th Century, and artifacts uncovered denote that they were settling the region in all probability from the sixth century. The commune as such was not observed till 906 when the Danes signed a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book outlined Leighton Manor.

The parish of Leighton Buzzard, in times past, embraced a considerably larger area than just the town itself, and consisted of the settlements of Eggington, Standbridge, Billington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name of the town appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" portion wouldn't be inserted till the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln had to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" which existed inside his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be let to a variety of tenants over the eras, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who assisted Charles I through the Civil War (1642-1645).
