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 double yellow lines at gate

The TRA, with the help of councillor Linda Kelly recently managed to get new double yellow lines painted at the entrance at the bottom of Prout Road.
The reason being that when there was a large vehicle (van/landrover/people carrier) parked both sides, there was no room for emergency vehicles like fire engines.
Even the bin truck had trouble entering occassionally.

It also means the view down Prout Road towards the park is less obstructed and, well, just more pleasant. Once the new planting has gone in and there's a long line of meadow flowers under the railings the view will be even better.
