Caption for Linslade, The Grand Union Canal C1960: The coming of firstly the Grand Union Canal and then the railways, led to the establishment of modern Linslade at its present location. The place name dates back to the 11th century, but the original village fell into disuse and no trace of it remains today. Until 1966, Linslade was a small, mainly Victorian town located in Buckinghamshire.

The River Ouzel - the original boundary between the counties - divides the jointly-named town.
