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.

Residents day trip to Brighton

(click on the poster to see it full size)

Phone Christine to book your seats on the coach 0208 806 6923
or email:

Families and children are welcome but be warned it will be about an hour and a half journey. Of course we will have a stop or two as needed and to stretch our legs but while on the bus everyone will have to remain seated with seat belts on.

Once there you can make your way around Brighton, meeting up at the coach again probably around 5.30pm for the trip back home.

It promises to be a good day. I will be taking a photo record, as I did for the Leeds Castle and Kew Gardens trips
