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.

Bench cartoon

(now with corrected spelling  ...I hope!)

Just for fun - there's actually lots about the bench on the "Sculpture" page

We are hoping to add two smaller satellite benches to replace the current very old ones and of course, to coordinate with the first new bench pictured in the cartoon

We have recently applied again to the HCVS for a GrassRoots Grant towards the benches and the grounds planting as the second stage of our "Visual Environment" project

The HCVS approved our first GrassRoots Grant application in 2009
for the (very successful) replanting of the estate's flower beds
as stage 1 of the "Visual Environment" project

There are too many posts about the project and grant to link to them all but you can get an overview by checking the "Grounds 1" page

Fingers crossed we are successful again this time

I will let you know as soon as...

For those interested, I created the cartoon entirely with Photoshop CS 5
