LEIGHTON

WITH THE VILLAGES OF LINSL.^DE,
X^EIGHTON BUZZ.-XRD, anciently wnttei) Lelg/iton ;
Beuti desert, is a parish, in the hundred of Manshead
and deanery of Dunstable — the market town, respectable
and thriving, is 41 inilfSN. w. from London, 20 s. s. w.
from Bedford, 17 s. e from Buckingham, IOn.e. from
Aylesliuiy, and 33 e. n. e. from Oxford; .situated on
the river Oui-el, on the borilers of Buckinghamshire,
on the London and North-Western Railway, for which
line Leighton is a first-class station. Some writers
accord to this place a dei;ree of conseqnence in remote
ages — they assert it to be the Lygean burgh of the
Saxou chronicle, which Cuthwulph took from the
liritons in 571 ; indeed it still possesses a relic of con-
sideiable antiquity, in the form of a Gothic cross of
stone, beautiful even in decay ; it stands in tlie open
area of the Market place, and is supposed to hai e with-
stood theoper.itioiis of time, climate and civil turmoil
for more than five hundred years — but by whom, or on
what ticcasion it was erected, even tiadition does not
attempt to reveal : its form is pentagonal, in height
thirty-eight feet; the upper story is divided into five
niches, each containing a statue; the first is in an
episcopal habit; thes econd represents the Virgin and
Jesus; the third appears to be des'gned for St. John
the t-vangi'list.the others are too mutilated to he defined.
Lord Leigh i* lord of the manor ; courts leet and baron
are held twice annually. Leighion is a polling statiim
at the election of county members, and it is included
in the thiity-si.\th circuit of County Court towns,
under the act passed 1846, for the recovery of debt.s to
any amount, not exceeding £20. — the coui t sits monthly

BUZZARD,

HOCKLIFFE AND NEIGHBOURHOODS.
Buzzard enjoys a considerable trade in corn, timber,
seed, iron, &c. : there are also some very extensive
maltings, with other establislini en ts in the lime and brick
trade; and the making of straw plat and laoe furnishes
employment to many females. By its proximity, the
Grand Junction Canal affords means of conveyance to
all parts; and the railway before mentioned supplit-s an
additional convenience of transit — and of consequence
has materially conduced to the prospeiiiy and increase
of the town.

The parish church of All Saints, is a haud.some cru-
ciform structure, principally in the early style of Eng-
lish aichitecture; it consists of a nave, chancel, two
side aisles, two transepts and vestry, with a plain
massive tower rising from the iiitei section, containing
a ring of hells, and is sui mounted by a much admired
octagonal stone spire, one hundred and ninety-three
feet in height : the living is in the presentation of the
Prtbcndaiy of Leighton Buzzard, in Lincoln cathedral.
The Society of Friends (a numerous and respectable
class in this place) have a meeting house ; the
Baptists two chapels and the Wesleyan Methodists one,
Matthew Wilkes, in 1630, founded almshouses for
eiyht indigent women, and the Honble. Mrs. Leigh, in
1790, endowed a free school here. A spacious and
convenient workhouse, capable of accommodating
three hundred recipients, has been erected here for
the poor of this Union. The market, which is held on
Tuesdav, is well attended, and abundantly supplied with
cattle, corn, lace, straw plat, &c. Fails, February 5th,
the second Tuesday in April, Whit-Tuesday, July 26th,
October 24th, and the first Tuesdav after the 10th of

^latcr'jf



December. The parish of Leighton Buzzard compre-
hends the chapeliies of Bili.ington, Eggington.
Heath-and-Reach, and Standridge, which, wifli
the lownsliip of Leieliton Buzzard, contained, by thf
returns rendered in 1831, 5,149 inhabitants, and in
1841, 5,5;i2 ; of which last number 3,965 were returned
for the township.

LiNSLADE is a pari.sh, coutiguous to that of Leighton



structure, erected in 1849: the liring is a perpetual
curacy, in the gilt of tht- Crown. The Baptists have a
neat place of worship, and there is an excellent national
schciol — both lately erected. The grant of a fiir and
market, to be held here — the former at Lady-day, the
latter on Thursd.ny, was made to VViUiam de Beaucliamp,
ill 1251, but they have both for ages ceased to be
ubsirved. The population of the parish, in 1841, was



Buzzard, but in tlie liundred of Cottesloe, county of 88:?, but it has since gieatly increased.



Bucks. In the thirteenth century this place obtained
some note horn being the resort of pilgrims to a lioly
well here, and proce.ssions were often formed to visit
it, until iu 1299, they were prohibited by the then
Bishop of Lincoln, as furnishing the means of profit
and extravaganie to the vicar. The village has latterly
much increased in population, size and consequence
from its proximity lo the treat railway line, and
warehouses have been eretted for the deposit of goods,



HocKLiFFE is a parish in the same linndred as
Leighton — the village, a small rural one, is 3 miles
E. s.B. from that lown, and 4 n. vv. from Dunstable;
situated at the junction of the Northampton road with
that of the London and Birmingham, and to be noticed
mtrely as a posting village. Tlie church, dedicated to
Saint Nicholas, is in the gothic style; the living is a
rectory, united to the vicarage of Chalgrave. There
are chapels for Independents and VVesleyan Methodists.



&c. The parish church of Saint Barnabas is a handsome I Population, in 1841, 420.
