Beautiful Rosewood Wheatstone Linota, dated 26th April 1916, for sale. In great condition and playing beautifully. Valued at £8000 sterling- valuation can be seen and instrument seen. Contact 087 1322268.
Presumably 30-key in C/G. Any photos? Does it still have the Wheatstone layout on the third row, or has it been modified to Jeffries layout?
No doubt it is a great instrument but £8K? Ouch! Even for a Linota that is a bit steep. You may well have been given that as a valuation, but I doubt whether you will achieve that price. £5K - £6K maybe. But good luck with your sale.

i am getting wildly varying advice on the current prices,
You quoted a valuation figure of £8000 but what was the valuation for? A valuation for insurance will always be significantly higher than a valuation for a private sale, and the retail price from a dealer would be somewhere in between. Though I do think that £8000 is OTT even for an insurance valuation, unless its exceptional even compared with other Linotas. Also there is less money around than a few years ago, I have had a Linota for sale at an asking price of £5500 and it has take a year to find a buyer.
