Positioned within the county of Beds in the East of England, the town of Leighton Buzzard sits close to the county border betwixt Bucks and Bedfordshire, beside the Grand Union Canal, Leighton Buzzard has a populace close to 37,000 and a historical past stretching back to the Roman era, at which time the historical A5 (then known as Watling Street) passed the town. Nowadays Leighton Buzzard is pretty much joined to the adjacent town of Linslade it is roughly mid-way between Luton (Bedfordshire) and Milton Keynes (Bucks), it is located close to the Chiltern Hills and boasts a vital quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard Through the Ages: It is felt that there existed settlements in or around what's now named Leighton Buzzard going back to unrecorded times, old artifacts and coins unearthed nearby give proof of this fact. The early Watling Street (made by the Romans), now named the A5, passed through the close by areas of Hockliffe and Dunstable around two thousand in years past, and the Romans would have at the very least been aware of the Leighton Buzzard settlement during those times.

The Anglo-Saxons followed after the Romans, and it was they who were using the market place during the 10th Century, and antiquities found suggest that they were living in the region most probably since the 6th Century. The village as it was was not cited till 906 at which time the Danes wrote a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) specified Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, historically, comprised a way greater area than merely the town alone, and comprised the settlements of Stanbridge, Billington, Eggington and Heath & Reach. The "Leighton" in the name appears to come from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component was not applied until the 12th Century at which time the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from a second "Leighton" that existed 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 during the Civil War (1642-1645).
