Historic England

W. M Palmer wrote in 1913:

Passing by the water mill into Cambridgeshire, and up a narrow path between walls which contain ancient bricks, Green Lane was reached. This is so called because the garden in front of the brick house called the Old Manor House was once the village green. It was enclosed in 1840. The extent of the green may be seen from the position of the cottages which still surround it. Previously this apce was called the Old Market, and it was here that Linton marker was held from 1246 to about 1280……….
