Introducing Linton

Introducing Linton…
Linton lies about 10 miles South-East of Cambridge, UK. Whilst managing to retain the ‘feel’ of a village, it is a bustling and friendly community. The population is about 5,000 and there are many clubs and societies for all age-ranges. The village is very well served by shops (including supermarkets, a chemist, newsagents, opticians, florist, IT consultants and much more) as well as a number of lovely pubs, each with their own unique flavour and identity.

Linton has four schools. There is an Infant School (St. Mary’s CE), a Middle School (Linton Heights), a secondary education Academy(Linton Village College) and a school for those with Special Needs (Granta).

For pleasure, our local residents can be found enjoying walks around the beautiful countryside that surrounds the village – or even at our local Linton Zoo where the lions live peaceably (though not always quietly!) alongside other animals…

Linton is situated well for travel. It is close to the A11 and the M11. It is well served by train stations approx. 20 mins drive from the village. Stansted airport is a short drive away – but we are not hampered by any noise pollution in that regard.

All in all, Linton is a beautiful place to live and work – and worship, of course! If you come for a visit, you are sure to receive a warm welcome!
