More about Beecholme

Beecholme is also the first postwar "mixed development" housing scheme in Hackney, with a mixture of houses and flats with the taller block having five storeys and containing one-bedroom and bedsit accommodation. It is featured in Volume 15 of Hackney History and was the site of Beecholme House, the family home of Maj. John André (d. 1780), who was executed as a British spy in the American War of Independence.

Cycle compounds proposed

Here are the photos of the cycle shelters/compounds.
The 20 cycle compound does have a clear plastic roof totally covering the gap as shown in the website photo by the way.
Whether we get the 10 or 20 depends on you.

I've got quotes from 3 companies and Urban Engineering are by far and away the best - both for quality and price. Remember, we have to decide exactly where to put it as well.

The difference in price
between the 10 & 20 cycle shelter is actually very small relatively.
In both cases the cost of getting a sub-contractor to simply lay the corner flats for the shed to be bolted to costs as much as the shelter itself!

Above is the link to their web site.
