Description
The well regarded village of Linton has a pleasing blend of both modern and period properties as well as a good range of local amenities including shops, public houses, post office, primary school and village college with its own sports centre. The market towns of Haverhill and Saffron Walden are approximately 8 miles distant and the University City of Cambridge is around 11 miles away. Audley End mainline station offering a commuter service to London's Liverpool Street is around 11 miles away and the M11 motorway access point is within approximately 8 miles at Duxford (junction 10).

HISTORIC INFORMATION 26 High Street sits centrally within Linton's picturesque High Street. In the 16th Century, numbers 26 and 28 High Street formed an inn called the Unicorn, and by 1685 it was known as The Red Lion. This coaching inn served the busy Turnpike Trust routes between Colchester and Cambridge and was the centre of many social and political activities. The arrival of the railway in Cambridge in 1825 ended the coaching era and The Red Lion was converted to a residential dwelling in 1855.
