Lindford is a small village of approximately 2,700 inhabitants about seven miles east of Alton. At the entrance to the village from the west is the Millennium Bridge over the River Wey, with attractive borders of hardy shrubs on either side. Entering from the South, there is Headley Mill where there is the ford that gave Lindford its name. Was the river called the Lin or the Lind at one time or does the village get its name from the linden or lime tree?
