Linby is a small village and civil parish in Nottinghamshire, England1 The nearest town is Hucknall which is immediately to the south-west1 The village grew up around the mills on the River Leen, from which Linby's name is derived Small streams known as Linby Docks run on both sides of the main street The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 2322

In the Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales 1870–72 John Marius Wilson described Linby:

The church of St Michael is much restored, but dates back to the 13th century There are two crosses in the village – Top Cross, was originally medieval and Bottom Cross probably erected around 1660 to celebrate the restoration of King Charles II

A local legend claims that the Pancake was invented by the women of the village, to celebrate the defeat of Danish invaders who had enslaved them

Three railway lines once passed through Linby, with stations on two of them The first was the Midland Railway later part of the LMS line from Nottingham to Mansfield and Worksop, closed to passengers on 12 October 1964 though partly retained as a freight route serving collieries at Annesley In the 1990s this line was reopened to passengers in stages, the section through Linby in 1993, but Linby station did not reopen with it

The second line was the Great Northern Railway later part of the LNER route serving many of the same places as the Midland It closed to passengers on 14 September 1931 but remained in use for freight until 25 March 1968 The Linby station on this line had closed long before, on 1 July 1916
