Church of England Diocese of Hereford Linton

About Us

St Mary’s, Linton stands on an ancient site, distinguished by the oldest yew tree in England (4000 years, according to certain authorities), and may have a history connected with the Christian community at ancient Ariconium. The church has strong support for the traditional Prayer Book services, and also has a more informal All-age service once a month. The parish was blessed in the 19th century by the energetic ministry of the Revd Edward Palin, great-grandfather of the comic actor.
