Linton is a village and civil parish in the Maidstone District of Kent, England. The parish is located on the southward slope of the Greensand ridge, south of Maidstone on the A229 Hastings road.
The name Linton comes from Old English, probably meaning Lilla’s village. The steepness of the hill through it is explained because of its position on the slope of the ridge. The village has a population of about 500. According to the reference quoted below “The 13th century church of St Nicholas contains an interesting and varied collection of monuments, including some by EH Baily, who sculpted the figure of Nelson in Trafalgar Square”.
Linton Park is a Grade I listed mansion to the east of the village. Built in 1730 by Robert Mann, it was later home to Sir Horatio Mann, the fourth and fifth Earls Cornwallis and Fiennes Cornwallis, 1st Baron Cornwallis. It served as headquarters to the army encampment at neighbouring Coxheath during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.
There is one public house ‘The Bull’ which is opposite the church. There is a children’s playground off a lane near the bottom of the hill which can be found at the end of a path just above the turning for Wheelers Lane. Cornwallis Academy is a secondary school located in the adjacent parish of Loose.
Linton Park Cricket Club play within the grounds of Linton Park country home. The team have won the National Village Cup on two occasions.
Linton is in a conservation area and most of the village has great views across to the Weald of Kent.

The best way to avoid problems with your septic tank system is to stick to a regular maintenance schedule. While there are no hard or fast rules on how often this should be as it depends on a variety of factors, at a bare minimum, you will want to arrange to have your septic tank pumped, cleaned and inspected at least once every 12 months.
When does a septic tank need emptying?
If you’ve noticed a bad smell in the area close to your septic system (more noticeable during the summer months), or have noticed the ground around where your septic tank is buried has become sodden, this is usually a tell-tale sign that your septic tank needs emptying. Another early warning sign of a full or backed-up septic tank is that your drains have started to drain slower than usual.
As we mentioned earlier, if it’s been over a year since you’ve last had your tank emptied, it would be a good idea to book a septic tank cleaning just to be safe and help avoid future troubles and costly bills.
