" The Buckingham Arms Public House: 84 Old Road, Linslade [previously Buckinghamshire Arms and Railway Tavern]

The Buckinghamshire Arms was built as the Railway Tavern, presumably around the time the railway reached Linslade in 1838. The establishment was renamed the Buckinghamshire Arms in late 1840s. Bedfordshire & Luton Archives & Records Service is not rich with information on Linslade licensed premises; owing to the fact that Linslade was in Buckinghamshire until 1965, no licensing records before that date are held by the service.

The Buckinghamshire Arms was owned by Proctor's Brewery which stood behind the High Street in Leighton Buzzard on the site later developed as a shopping centre. On the death of Joseph Procter in 1865, the public house, along with the other brewery property was conveyed by his executors to Percy Proctor for £6,354/16/6 [Z1118/1/21/39]. The establishment was described in the will as: "a messuage in Linslade [Buckinghamshire] in occupation of George Bonham, then Sarah Smith, widow, then Daniel Hands, now William Fossey Pettit previously called the Railway Tavern, now the Buckingham Arms, erected some years since by Austin Horwood on a garden bought from John Cobb; the remainder of the garden of John Cobb, now of William Arnold west; the road from Leighton Buzzard to Soulbury [Buckinghamshire] north; the road branching off to Soulbury and the London & North Western Railway Company station east and the road to the station south." This reference clearly establishes the genesis of the property.

Also in 1864 it was noted [Z1118/1/21/41] that the lease of the Buckingham Arms was worth £30 per annum."
