Linton Village

Linton is a small village in Herefordshire, England, around 5 kilometres (3 mi) east of Ross-on-Wye.

St. Mary’s Church dates from the 13th century. There are regular services and the church itself has some interesting carvings, headstones and several ancient yew trees in the churchyard. The spire can be seen when travelling eastwards on the M50 motorway when 2 miles east of junction 4. There is also a Village Hall, which hosts regular activities. Sadly, the Post Office which opened a few hours each week has recently closed due to the postmaster’s retirement after a long and valuable service to the residents.

Regular community and charity fund-raising activities take place in the Village Hall. Regular  weekly activities include First Linton Brownies, and Tai Chi.  The Weavers Group meet every other week, the Linton & District History Society, and  Linton Women’s Institute meet each month and there are other groups including a Linton Walking Group and Linton Gardening Club. See the Clubs and Societies page, and the Village Hall page for more information.

Each year, the Alma Inn hosts The Linton Festival, a charitable annual event providing a range of local and more exotic ales and music . The Alma provides a natural amphitheatre that is the garden to the rear of the pub which is an intimate environment for the notable Blues acts the committee books each year.

The festival is organised by a committee responsible for the creation of funds for an increasing number of local charities and good causes.
