More New Homes On The Way For East Yorkshire - Thanks To Linden Homes
11 Jun 2014

Linden Homes North is expanding its property portfolio in East Yorkshire, with the announcement of a new development in the town of Market Weighton.

The Hessle-based developer has legally completed on the site at Wicstun Way, where it has planning permission for a mix of 99 two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Work on the development is due to begin in the next few weeks, and while a marketing name for the site has yet to be announced – it is expected that Linden Homes will have a presence at the location for at least the next three years.

The 99 homes being showcased at the development will be ideal for everyone from first time buyers, young professionals, those looking to downsize and families.

Linden Homes North sales director Steve Woomble said: “We are delighted to announce this latest development and addition to our portfolio in the popular East Riding area. Given the early success and the ‘buy off plan’ trend at our recent new developments, we anticipate huge forward interest in the Market Weighton scheme.”

The town, with its long history dating back 750 years, is perfectly positioned between the bustling centres of Beverley and York.

The local area also offers excellent educational and recreational facilities and boasts its own eclectic history, including being the hometown of William Bradley – known as ‘The Yorkshire Giant’ - who at the age of 20 was seven feet and nine inches tall.

William died aged 33 in 1820, and was buried inside the church. His house still stands on Market Hill and the A1079 road, which passes Market Weighton, is named Giant Bradley Way.

The town boasts its own monument to him and his chair still has pride of place in the local pub. A festival is held each May in his memory.
