Person/Corporate type
Born 9 November 1905, Roy Brewster was known locally as the bee-man.
He began keeping bees at the age of 19, an interest which was to develop over the years. He went on the build a hexagonal house, Norian, in Sanders Ave, known to many as the Beehive House. Brewster believed right angles were alien to harmonious living and worked to eliminate them from his lifestyle. A fascination with flight and the theories of aerodynamics inspired Brewster to develop drawings and build models of aircraft. He died in March 1978.
