Found in the county of Beds in the East of England, the charming town of Leighton Buzzard lies close to the boundary in between Bucks and Beds, on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, the town has a populace of approximately 37,000 and a history going back to the days of the Romans, at which time the Roman built Watling Street (now the A-5) passed the town. At present Leighton Buzzard is coupled with the adjoining town of Linslade and is about halfway between Milton Keynes (Buckinghamshire) and Luton, it stands near the Chiltern Hills and boasts a significant quarrying industry (sand).

Leighton Buzzard History: It's thought that there had been settlements in or around what is now known as Leighton Buzzard way back in prehistoric times, early artifacts and coinage picked up in close proximity show proof of this fact. The olden Watling Street (constructed by the Romans), now referred to as the A5, came through nearby Dunstable and Hockliffe around about two thousand in years past, and the Romans will have at the very least known of the village at that time.

The Anglo-Saxons came after the Romans, and it was they who used the market place during the tenth century, and artifacts discovered suggest that they were residing in the vicinity more than likely since the 6th Century. The village as it was then is not discussed till 906 when the Danes made a peace treaty at Tiddenfoot, the Domesday Book (1086) talked about Leighton Manor.

The ecclesiastical parish of Leighton Buzzard, over time, incorporated a lot larger area than just the town itself, and contained the hamlets of Heath & Reach, Eggington, Billington and Stanbridge. The "Leighton" in the town's name could have been taken from the old English meaning "a clearing in the woods", the "Buzzard" component wasn't added until the twelfth century after the Dean of Lincoln was required to differentiate it from yet another "Leighton" that existed within his diocese. The Manors of Leighton would be tenanted to a great many tenants over the generations, like the Leighs of Stoneleigh, who endorsed Charles I during the Civil War (1642-1645).
