Post Office, 45 High Street, Linton

History of Post Office

Listed building:

Shop and workshop. Late C18 or early C19. The property was owned by a saddler in the early C19.

DT wrote in 2023: This was once the site of the saddling business of the Maris family. Home of the Maris family for 300 years. The family lived upstairs and shared the ground at the back of the shop with all other houses in the block to house their livestock during the winter. In the summer months the stock were taken through the kitchen out into the street and then to the fields to graze. Post Office was here for 1962 until 1991.
