Bartlow  Cambridgeshire


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

BARTLOW, or Great Bartlow, a parish, with a r. station, in Linton district, Cambridgeshire; on the Cambridge and Haverhill railway, 2¼ miles SE of Linton. Post Town, Linton, under Cambridge. Acres, 370. Real property, £677. Pop., 120. Houses, 23. The property is divided among a few. ...

Bartlow House and Bartlow Cottage are chief residences. Four barrows, popularly called Bartlow Hills, command an extensive view; and are generally, but erroneously, regarded as graves of the slain in the battle of 1016 between Edmund Ironside and Canute. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Ely. Value, £259.* Patron, R. Watkins, Esq. The church has a round Saxon tower, and is very good.
