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 bench by Tim Norris approved

The TRA at today's meeting accepted Tim's new design for the sculpted bench

Drawing by Tim Norris (RSBS)

It will be quite a substancial piece with steel straps at the back, hidden beneath a semi-circular sloping grass covered bank (at about 45 degrees).

It is the first (and largest) of 3 planned co-ordinated benches for the main Beecholme square designed by Tim, the next two to go in as funding is found.
