  • Further to your question, Kay, Chatteris museum holds no records of births, deaths etc. since they are all with Cambridge Central Records Office in Cambridge but it is interesting that the 1911 census lists a Leonard, born 12 Feb 1904, son of Alfred and Ada Barker. Most interesting is that Alfred was a grocer living in West Park St but, we don’t know if this was the shop at number 1 where Len later based his cycle shop? Believe this Len died in 1990 so maybe someone may have more details?

  • Even further on this subject, I have a note of Len’s father having Len’s cycle shop in West Park St as a radio shop -probably 1920-30s – since mention has been made of people taking their Dad’s accumulator for the early radios there for charging.

  • This is believed to be the Len Barker who later opened his own cycle shop at 1 West Park Street. He was a member of Chatteris Town Bowls Club in 1923 and on the St Peter’s Church Social Club committee in 1948.
