Visit to Holy Trinity Church, Hildersham
Holy Trinity, dating from at least the thirteenth century, retains its original font and medieval brasses together with an ancient fifteenth century ladder. In the nineteenth century the Goodwin family restored the church, commissioning Clayton & Bell to paint the richly decorated chancel and supply the fine stained glass windows.
An historical walk around Linton
The village of Linton, situated on the Essex and Cambridgeshire border, was a thriving market town in the Middle Ages and its fine High Street has a series of houses dating from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries. St Mary’s Church dates back to the fourteenth century and the mill known as Hadstock Mill was recorded here in 1225. Linton is well known for its Village College, built in the Art Deco style in 1937 as part of Henry Morris’s ambition to bring opportunities to rural communities.
