‘the redoubtable Margaret Foote of Lord’s Farm’ 1899-1983

Margaret Foote

Margaret Foote (24 Jan 1980)

Thanks to Bill Bryant for sourcing the photo (date is approximate). A brief obituary appeared in the Eynsham Record 1, 1984:

‘Margaret Foote, a member of the Eynsham History Group for many years, had a love for local history, and an especial awareness of the historical importance of her home, Lord’s Farm. It is entirely in character that she has bequeathed the latter, with adjacent cottages and barn, to the Oxford Preservation Trust; her Abbey relics to the County Museum at Woodstock; and her history notebooks and files to the EHG. The latter include notes taken at about 30 of our meetings between 1959 and 1977.’

Read about the bread van that became a Bible Cart - Eynsham Record 22 (2005).

The OPT undertook substantial restoration to Lord’s Farm in 2016 but plans ‘to convert the adjoining two storey stone barn into a two bedroom dwelling with single storey link extension and associated private amenity space’ were lodged with WODC in 2019 and approved in November 2020.
