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.

free thermal image & energy assessment


Save money on your heating bills
and reduce carbon emissions

Dalston Energy Angels will
before the end of March and for free:

• Carry out home energy surveys
to deliver advice on how to reduce energy consumption

• Undertake thermal imaging surveys
to show where heat is escaping from homes

• Work with community organisations
addressing fuel poverty

• Work with local construction professionals
to help them secure new business

So whether you’re a resident with a draughty house, a tenant who spends nearly as much on heating as rent, or a local builder wanting to develop the sustainable side of your business – do get involved.

Energy Angels can also provide draft proofing strips and radiator heat reflecting panels at cost price. For vulnerable or disabled residents, Energy Angels can help with fitting these.

Energy Angels are also working to create a network of local tradespeople skilled in sustainability adaptions who can help residents with improvements.

People working on this project are all Hackney residents, mostly volunteers, and are involved in local environmental initiatives such as Transition Hackney, Transition Stoke Newington, Transition Finsbury Park, Sustainable Hackney, Arcola Energy, The Green Party and Hackney Friends of the Earth.

Energy Angels want to help neighbours increase the energy efficiency of their homes and reduce their carbon emissions and fuel bills.

You'll usually be visited by 2 people, one person who normally does this as their day job and one person who also has a good working knowledge of energy saving measures and resources.

This is the "Dalston Energy Angels project", coordinated by the Arcola Theatre and funded by the Dept of Energy and Climate Change.
