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.

New gate sign
These are the proportions of the current gate sign and is a version, as you see, without any large areas of background colour, making it easier to print.
The orange background below is my preferred proportions simply because it suits the design.
The difference is cost should be minimal - I'll keep you informed.
Here is my design for the new gate sign (see article "Semi-what" lower down) to replace the current "UNAUTHORIZED" sign.
I'm hoping to paint the galvanized gate black as well, to match the accompanying street furniture.
I'm also working on a design for the large estate map sign. I intend to use a 3D drawing rather than flat blocks and orientated to match your point of view in front of it. That is, not necessarily with north pointing virtically.
