Linton upon Ouse  North Riding


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Linton upon Ouse like this:

LINTON-UPON-OUSE, a township in Newton-upon-Ouse parish, N. R. Yorkshire; on the upper level of the river Ouse, 6 ½ miles SW of Easingwold. Acres, 2,030. Real property, £2,519. Pop., 253. Houses, 52. The property belongs to University College, Oxford. A selfacting wasteboard was constructed at Naburn-lock on the Upper Ouse navigation, at a cost of £300, and the depth of water thence to Linton-locks was so increased as to admit of vessels of 7 feet draught passing on to Boroughbridge. A Church of England school is here, with endowment of £25 a year.
