Lingdale Village Profile

Quality of Environment

Lingdale was an 1870 mining village with Victorian terraced housing. The half mile long High Street is lined to the north with terraces or modern infill on the site of old miners’ cottages. Both types having fairly long rear gardens beyond which are open fields.

South of this road some terraced properties remain but have replaced or infilled with new housing with front and rear gardens. The linear nature of the settlement is broken with many attractive green gaps where roads lead to modern estates housing south of the High Street. There are a variety of properties owned by occupiers or by Coast & Country Housing.

Beyond the estate lies the modern Lingdale Primary School.
