I am researching the life of Leonard Illingworth, who lived in Foxton from the early 1920s till his death in the mid 1950s. He lived at The Way’s End, with two and a half acres of garden, where he kept an apiary of 5o-60 hives. He was an active chess player at county level and previously at Cambridge University. His bee-keeping interests led to involvement in various related organisations and an active side line as a writer on bee-matters. He was also a gifted musician (piano and organ).
I would be interested to hear from anyone who has information on his life, family background and origins, and local activities, and his property in Foxton.
