Linton is a small village and civil parish in Herefordshire, England, around 5 kilometres (3 mi) east of Ross-on-Wye.

It has a church called St. Mary's, which dates from the 13th century. The spire can be seen when travelling eastwards on the M50 motorway when 2 miles east of junction 4. There is also a village hall, and a post office which opens a few hours each week.

Several activities take place in the village hall: Brownies, pilates etc.

Each year, the only pub in the village hosts a charitable event;[1]

The festival is organised by a committee responsible for the creation of funds for an increasing number of local charities and good causes. The Landlords of The Alma Inn[1] run the beer tents, providing a range of local and more exotic ales each year. The Alma provides a natural amphitheatre that is the garden to the rear of the pub which is an intimate environment for the notable Blues acts the committee books each year.

Linton is also home to one of the oldest trees in England, found in the Linton Churchyard.
