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.

Bike Shelter break-in attempt

Just goes to show these guys are about as thick as two short planks
They cut through the chain that was welded onto the Chubb lock (to stop people walking away with it) which freed the chain, but not the lock. They then started to hacksaw through the hasp and of course gave up in frustration.

Andy Webb (pictured below) of Horse Workshops (the forge) in the Old Tram Depot kindly did the welding repair today and will be fitting a new PIR spotlight with inbuilt camera in the coming days.

Thanks Andy
