Lime Leaves

Great Linford Manor Park is home to a great old Lime tree, fondly known as the Linford Lime, which is between 300-500 years old. Some people think that the name 'Linford' came from where there was a river crossing (ford) between lime trees (also known as Linden trees), but there are other suggested origins for the name 'Linford'.

Lime trees are characterised by their heart-shaped leaves and these stepping stones are a wonderful depiction, carved by local stonemason Louis Francis. They lead visitors from the footpath towards the Lime tree.
