Linton is a parish adjoining Bromyard on the E.
b(1). Linton Brook House, house, 1,500 yards W. of Linley Green, is of two storeys with cellars and attics; the walls are of rubble and the roofs are tiled. It was built c. 1600 on an L-shaped plan with the wings extending towards the W. and S. and with a staircase-wing in the angle. In the N. wall is an original atticwindow of four lights with moulded mullions. The main chimney-stack has diagonal pilaster-strips on the four faces. Inside the building are exposed ceiling-beams; the original staircase has symmetrically turned buttresses to the lower part and flat shaped balusters above; the square newels have moulded terminals. The S. room on the first floor has an early 17th-century plaster ceiling with moulded panels.
The following monuments, unless otherwise described, are of the 17th century and of two storeys; the walls are timber-framed and the roofs are tile or slate-covered. Most of the buildings have exposed external timber-framing and internal ceiling-beams.
