History of Linton
Until the formation of Parish and District Councils in 1894 Linton had always been regarded as a town. It’s prosperity had been based on the establishment of a flourishing Market in 1246 which became the centre of local economic activity. The town expanded it’s own trades and cottage industries but all were still dependent on the wealth generated by a thriving agricultural industry. The beautiful timber houses along the High Street and Lanes which give our old village its attractive appearance, were all built from this income.
Early in the 19th century the whole basis of Linton’s prosperity was threatened by economic, political and social change. Vibrant coaching inns succumbed to the railways, leather and textile trades failed to compete with both local and North country mills, the Napoleonic Wars crippled agriculture and the doubling of the population overstretched local housing resources. Some new cottages were built outside of the corps Village in the Bartlow Road, but poverty was too widespread to encourage real investment in housing or communal amenities.
Linton responded to these new economic conditions and prosperity returned between 1840 and 1880. Farms were enclosed to boost productivity, the malting trade flourished based on local barley, the railway came in 1865 and a new river bridge was constructed in 1867. However, from the 1880’s a long term agricultural decline set in caused by the importation of cheap overseas food. The population fell from 2061 in 1851 to 1530 in 1901, and only recovered to the 1851 figure by 1961. People moved to London or emigrated further a field and local farmers could not afford to build cottages to renew the deteriorating housing stock.
Villages must adapt to changing circumstances if they are to survive and Linton did. Parish and District Councils built our council estates on the fringes of the village providing cheap modern accommodation which enabled people to stay in the locality. Industry was encouraged to replace jobs lost in the continuing agricultural depression of the 20’s and 30’s.The provision of electricity in 1935, water in 1936 and sewerage in the 1950’s laid the basis for future expansion. Post war subsidies to support farming, together with the successful establishment of local trading estates attracted new people and new money to the village. The car enabled commuters to reside in Linton and it is largely their money which saved and restored our historic centre.
All these changes to preserve and breathe new life into our village depended on the expansion of local housing, good local planning initiatives such as seen in the 1968 Village Plan and meaningful local consultative procedures. Linton has changed over time and it has only survived and prospered because local people were sufficiently far sighted to adapt to new circumstances.
