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.

The better alternative

“Clapton residents are fighting for their
cultural heritage – campaigning to keep
the old Tram Depot a space for artists
and small-scale manufacturers.
I am supporting their push to retain and
regenerate this unique building, so it can
take up its rightful place at the heart of
Clapton’s community.”
 said London Assembly member Jennette Arnold, 
who has given her full backing to CAT’s campaign. 

"I would like to strongly support the idea of turning the Old Tram Depot at 38-40 Upper Clapton Road over to an Arts & Crafts Trust or Foundation."


"I was happy to sign the petition,
I think it is a really visionary idea"
                                 says Diane Abbott MP
