Glinton is a popular village which has a pleasant community, attractive cottages and imposing houses particularly in the older conservation part of the village. A striking part of the village is the church - the spire of St Benedict's Church is considered by many experts to be one of the finest needle spires in England, second only to Salisbury Cathedral. It is the subject of one of John Clare's poems Glinton Spire. Clare, although born in Helpston, went to school in the church, and there is an inscription dated 1808 on the door frame of the church.
Glinton has several small shops including a chemist, post office/general store and a public house. There are two schools in the village, a Church of England primary school and Arthur Mellows Village College.
The village of Glinton is ideally situated as it is only 11 miles from the historic market town of Stamford, the cathedral city of Peterborough is approximately 6 miles away and has excellent train links to Kings Cross, London which take approx 45 minutes.
