1986 LINBY VILLAGE
Linby is a small parish situated in the Leen Valley. The surrounding land is mainly agricultural with some woodland and an existing magnesium lime-stone quarry and a number of disused quarries. The village deemed a Conservation Area retains much of its picturesque character with streams flowing down each side of the main street, local stone built cottages, two old stone crosses and a church with embattled and pinnacled tower, a early norman doorway and 14th century stained glass window. Linby Hall is a section of an original medieval great hall with numerous stone outbuildings one of which is "The Old Dovecourt", there is also a water wheel and associated milling equipment at the rear of the hall. The original stone built school is now known as "Hanson House" and is the County Girl Guide
