There’s a real buzz about the place


We have given a group of beekeepers some prime real estate on which to keep their hives – on the edge of our woodland around Midgley and West Bretton.

At this time of year the bees start bringing pollen back to the hive ahead of the swarming season and the woodland provides the perfect place for the dozen or so hives as they will be undisturbed but close to plenty of nectar sources.

If you’re interested in becoming a beekeeper yourself or would simply like to find out a bit more information, visit the British Beekeepers Association website at
