84 Blinco Grove, S. Leonard’s

History of 84 Blinco Grove


Cambridge Road (Cherry Hinton Road). It is not clear whether this is the same house as in 1891. It is possible that since there were so few houses in this immediate area at the time, the property was reached on a track from Cherry Hinton Road. In 1871 Edward Baldock was living in Sturton Street Cambridge with, according to the census, his son Frank, 2, sister Emily, 15, and a lodger George West. At that time he was a railway porter.
