Based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Splashbacks of Distinction have a real passion for toughened glass in and around the home. We have transformed many properties, both commercial and domestic with our glass splashbacks, for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. Our toughened glass balustrades, glass shelving and splashbacks with high resolution images have really caught the imagination of people who demand beauty and functionality in their homes and offices. We cover many areas outside of Hertfordshire too, including Linton in Cambridgeshire.
A mere thirteen miles from Linton is our new show room in Cambridge. So when you want to actually see some of our fantastic toughened glass products in person, a journey of about twenty minutes will have you there, but why did we choose Cambridge for our new glass show room?
The level of interest we have seen recently from the residents of Cambridgeshire has been frankly mind blowing. It's as if barely a day went by when we didn't receive calls enquiring about our quality glass products. Having said that, we get enquiries from many different areas, but as we are based in Stevenage in Hertfordshire, we are well placed to deal with the more local enquiries. It became clear that we needed a presence in the Cambridgeshire area too to satisfy the level of demand for our products. As Linton is so close to Cambridge, you too can take advantage of our new purpose built show room.
Seeing our products in mock ups gives you a true picture of what they are likely to look like in your own property. This makes what you choose so much easier than simply browsing a website. In fact, we have noticed that many of our clients visit us to see the actual products in person, enjoy a coffee whilst discussing the potential for their property, then choosing the colour scheme from the website at their leisure.
The 1086 Domesday Book records Linton as Lintone, with just twenty seven households and two mills.
The village has expanded since the 1960s and is now a dormitory village of Cambridge. A dormitory village is a commuter village. In short, it is a populated area that is primarily residential rather than commercial or industrial. People who live in commuter towns or villages usually work in other places. Commuting from home to work and then from work to home is where the term comes from. The term dormitory is more of an American term that has been adopted to refer to a commuter village in the United Kingdom.
The railway station was on the Stour Valley Railway between Shelford and Colchester, closed since 1967. The station house is H-shaped and made of tan colour brick. It is still standing, as well as the platform and sunken trackbed space at the back of the building. Many rail enthusiasts still visit the site today.
Many a fly fisherman has sought their quarry in rivers up and down the country, but nothing suggests the presence of the elusive wild brownie than a chalk stream. Izaak Walton wrote the Compleat Angler about his adventures on many a chalk stream such as the Granta, that runs through Linton.
The River Granta, that runs through the village and is, as mentioned above, a chalk stream. The Granta is a 29km long chalk stream with a wild brown trout population present throughout its length. The catchment falls mainly within the East Anglian Chalk National Character Area. It has a chalk geology overlain with deposits of clay, sand and flint gravel.
The Wacky Races was a local annual event that occurred from 2002 to 2006 on the second Bank Holiday Weekend in May. It began on the extended Bank Holiday Weekend, which commemorated Queen Elizabeth II 50th coronation anniversary, and raise money for local charities. Participants would race in comedic, homemade costumes and carts down the High Street, with one teammate stopping in each pub to have a pint, and then racing through the fields next to the village and back down the High Street, again drinking in the pubs. Along the course, Firemen, from Linton Fire Station, would spray water at the racers, as well as spectators utilising water pistols and water bombs.
For fans of Steve Coogans fictional character Alan Partridge, he was reported as staying at the also fictional Linton Travel Tavern in the show I'm Alan Partridge, claiming that Linton is equidistant between London and Norwich. Linton is near the halfway point of the London to Norwich A11 trunk road, although some four miles from the road itself. The actual location used for the television series was the Hilton Hotel on the A41 near Bushey, not far from Watford in south Hertfordshire.
