John Noble and the bush in Beecroft
John Noble was a pioneer in the preservation and management of the local bushland of Beecroft and Cheltenham. He was a mechanical engineer by profession but already had a keen interest in the natural world when he moved with his wife Grace and family to Beecroft in 1949. The area was then still quite rural and his original address of 46, Mary Street was later redesignated 30, Fiona Road due to several undeveloped gullies along the line of the original Mary St.
