Famously one-time home to the Rootes car plant, Linwood has undergone a major transformation in recent years.
Check out the On-X Linwood for a splashing good time, enjoy family fun at the Big Adventure soft play, catch a film at the nearby cinema or have some shopping therapy at the local retail parks.
This small town owes its existence to the building of cotton and flax mills in the 18th century.
The expansion and economy of Linwood from 1961 onwards relied heavily on the manufacturing of cars. In particular, the Hillman Imp made Linwood’s name. This revolutionary small car went into production in 1963.
