Flower Delivery to Glinton with Clare Florist

Glinton is a village located around six miles to the north of the city of Peterborough in the county of Cambridgeshire. It has grown at a steady rate over the years; it had a population of 1,660 people in 1991, which grew to 3,130 people 20 years later in 2001. One of the best things about Glinton is that the A15 (aka the Peterborough bypass) separates it from the “urban sprawl” of the city, allowing the village to retain its rural character while ensuring that it has good transport connections to London and Cambridge.

The History of Glinton

No one is really sure where the village got its name. It may have come from the Old English word “glente” (which means “lookout place”), the Middle Low German word “glinde” (which means “fence” or “enclosure”), or the Old Danish word “klint” (which means “hill”). It may also mean “village on the Glym brook”, which refers to Brook Drain.

There is evidence that the village was settled by humans 7,000 years ago during the Mesolithic age. Archaeologists have also unearthed field systems that date back to the Iron Age as well as excellently preserved well and a farm complex that were built during the Roman times. Glinton was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and, at the time, most of the land in the village was owned by the Peterborough Abbey. Near the end of the 13th century, the village was considered to be one of the richest manors of the Abbey.

When you spend some time in Glinton, make sure to visit St Benedict’s Church. It’s considered to have one of the finest needle spires in all of England, bested only by Salisbury Cathedral, so take the time to admire its spire and maybe even take pictures! The church is also the subject of the poem “Glinton Spire”, which was written by John Clare. Clare was educated in the church, which later became the burial place of his sweetheart Mary Joyce.
