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.

Great start for Chatsworth Road Market

see the article accompanying the photo above at

‘We are pleased to see the market once more in operation. Thanks to everyone who came and supported. We had everything from clothes, cheesecake, jewellery, baked cakes, to quality tea and even impromptu piano and clarinet serenaders. It was a crisp day but the sun shone and hundreds of people enjoyed the atmosphere.

‘It’s been kept at 20 stalls to start with, but we have every confidence it will grow from strength to strength as time goes on. We would encourage those interested in running a stall to look on the website or call us, and for the rest to pay Chats Market a visit on December 5 or 12 for more bargains and interesting buys for Christmas.’
