Linbriggs is a hamlet by the River Coquest in Northumberland, located about 11 miles north-west of Rothbury and just under 2 miles west of Alwinton. There are remains of medieval settlemets to the north of Limbriggs.

LINBRIGGS, a township, in the parish of Allenton, union of Rothbury, W. division of Coquetdale ward, N. division of Northumberland, 11 miles (W. by N.) from Rothbury; containing 62 inhabitants. This is a large township, consisting for the most part of fine green hills, and divided into stock farms. Bygate Hall, Makendon, Loungesknow, and Birdhope are all good sheep lands. The river Coquet, near the spot where the Ridlee burn joins it, is crossed by a bridge; several clear brooks run through the glens in the neighbourhood, and join the river.
