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 map for Beecholme Estate sign

Click on the map to see it full size

Above is the second draft of a new map for the Beecholme Estate.

I've designed using Adobe Illustrator and will have the Beecholme logo with the leaves (see further below) above it.

It's to go into the new large estate signs that Hackney Homes have just authorized.
The map above still has some more approval procedures to go through but I think it will remain substantially the same.
