Linton, North Yorkshire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linton is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England. The population as of the 2011 census was 176.[1] It is to the immediate south, and across the River Wharfe, from Grassington, near Threshfield and eight miles north of the market town Skipton. The green of this small village is set among an old Vanbrugh almshouse, a pub and three stone bridges over its beck. Not far to its north-east, Linton Beck runs down to the River Wharfe at the limestone Linton Falls, there bridged for walkers on a path up the Wharfe's north bank to Grassington.

Amidst the group of cottages close by the Falls is a 14th century, packhorse bridge, 'Little Emily's Bridge', a few minutes' walk from the church of Saint Michael and All Saints. Dating from the 12th century, Linton Church (as it is usually called) spreads an apron of churchyard, decorated with buttercups and gravestones, upon a small river plain bounded by a bend to its east of the Wharfe, as it flows from the Falls toward Burnsall, along the Dales Way. Except at high water, the river is crossed near the churchyard by an ancient course of stepping-stones, below an old (now renovated) mill house.[2]

History

Linton was historically a parish in Staincliffe Wapentake in the West Riding of Yorkshire.[3] The ancient parish included the townships of Grassington, Hebden and Threshfield, all of which became separate civil parishes in 1866.[4] Linton was transferred to North Yorkshire in 1974.

Linton Falls

Linton Falls was first built in 1909 but later abandoned in 1948. In 2012 it was restored by the construction of a hydroelectric plant.[5]
