The Crown Inn, High Street, Linton

History of the Crown Inn

On 24th June 1907 the CDN reported: Fire broke out at the Crown Hotel, Linton, after the landlord went for an afternoon walk. The village fire brigade set to work but as soon as the windows were broken open the flames burst out in all directions. Three rooms were completely gutted with a large quantity of spirits, cigars and cigarettes destroyed in addition to books, furniture and pictures. The origin is shrouded in mystery. The commercial room, where the blaze started, has not had a fire in the grate for three weeks.
